Prehistoric monuments of the Lake District



The Lake District is famous for its magnificent scenery, but it is also an area that has been inhabited from early prehistoric times.

This book by a former county archaeologist of Cumbria is both an introduction to the prehistoric archaeology of Cumbria and a field guide to the area. More than 100 Neolithic and Bronze Age sites are described, in particular the many conspicuous stone circles. There is new material on major sites such as the Swinside circle and previously unpublished information on both well-known and new sites. The whole work is illustrated by a fine range of photographs and plans.
