A complete new history of the world’s leading specialist Pierre CircleBritain world wide stone circles turns its attention to the greatest example of all – StonehengeAll aspects of Stonehenge are re-examined in Aubrey Burl’s new analysesFor the first time, he explains how the long peripheral heel stone predates Stonehenge himself, acting as a track marker in the prehistoric Harroway.It reveals new evidence that the Welsh site was brought to Stonehenge by glaciation, rather than by man.And it reveals the extent to which Stonehenge’s conception was influenced by Breton and Breton cult styles of the dead.Meticulously researched defines the recording directly on the issue of Stonehenge’s astronomical alignmentsAlthough the existence of a line of sight for summer solstice sunrise is well known, alignment and viewing position are different from popular belief.And the existence of an earlier alignment to the moon and the last one for mid-winter sunset was largely untapped.An almost unexplained puzzle remainsThe Stonehenge site is located in the heart of a vast six-mile wide cemetery, but before it was built it seems to have been a mysterious space two miles across this site.Burl argues that totem pole-style constructions served as a ceremonial for life – to celebrate hunting successes.
