Guide to the Stone Circles of Cumbria
This attractive guide now in its second enhanced edition is the first overview of its kind to be published for many years and benefits from previously unpublished research. The guide will take the reader on an exciting journey of discovery into these enigmatic monuments and their incomparable landscapes so beloved by the Romantics.
The book lists in detail some 50 sites and is superbly illustrated with colour photographs, plans and rare antiquarian plates. The guide also provides the most extensive gazetteer of stone circles yet published, many of which have now disappeared from the landscape. Each site entry in the guide is given the necessary information to enable the visitor to locate the circles. It also explains the historic landscape of the circles and its significant features. It is hoped that this guide will provide a resource which will appeal to the general reader, visitors and all students of prehistory. The first edition was published in 2008 and is now out of print.
