4.0 étoiles sur 5 This guide was our companion when roaming Dartmoor last June 30 octobre 1999
Par susan jennings - Publié sur Amazon.com
My husband and I are very interested in ancient cultures and especially stone circles; this book told us where they were, what to expect to see, and how to get there (which wasn't always very easy!) We were able to pick an area of England with a heavy concentration of good quality circles based on his descriptions and pictures, and with book in hand, see many of the ones we chose. Mr. Burl is kind enough to mention when the going is tough, and he was always right. The only thing that could make this book any more invaluable as a field guide would be inclusion of Surveyor's Maps of the areas...but those can be purchased easily in the countries in question. (Color photos would've been nice, too!) Highly recommended for real trip-planning, or just for inspiration!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An essential resource 7 juillet 2001
Par "bhoberg" - Publié sur Amazon.com
I recently returned from a vacation over in Ireland/Scotland/Wales where for 4 weeks I and 2 of my friends researched and visited stone circles throughout the Isles. Aubrey Burl definitely has written an essential resource you should pick up if you have the intentions of going to see them. He touches on a great number of "out of the way" stone circles not widely known in areas and gives precise directions on how to get to them. It is almost like a treasure hunt, you never knwo what is around the corner in Aubrey's book! A definite must get for the stone circle enthusiast. Don't even think about putting this book down. Get a map, get this book, and go hunting for these great spiritual centers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A superb guide to the stones of Great Britain and Brittany. 2 juin 1996
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Burl, an expert on the subject of stone circles, has
created an essential and portable guide to all of the
major sites in Great Britain and Brittany. The sites
listed in the book are
numbered and keyed to useful maps which offers visitors to
a given area the opportunity
to avoid missing anything of interest. Each
site has a thorough description which often includes
interpretations, a "condition code", and practical
instructions as to how to find it. Also included is a
good index and bibliography, and, for most sites,
reference to published literature. This is not a book
of photographs or site maps, although there are
quite a few of each, especially for the
better sites. Rather, this
is an exceptional and really practical
little guidebook, one anyone headed for the field
will certainly want to
carry along.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a great work made better 28 novembre 2004
Par Deborah MacGillivray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
Aubrey Burl's previous works were showing a wee bit of dating. As carbon dating become more accurate, you are seeing these ancient rings grow older in age instead of younger as they anticipated. While Burl's previous works were amazing, this long awaited "update" of this information, as well as addition information on more recent excavations make this is must. Yes, it expensive. But it's worth every penny. There are new insight in the the purpose of the rings of stone, a new interpretation of Calanais (sorry, as a Scot I refuse to call it Callanish!) and Stonehenge

The beautiful book is loaded with hundreds of photos, explores the ancestry, methods of construction and why they were abandoned after thousands of years of use.

Marvelous work made even better by bringing the information up to date.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Indispensible to understanding what you see 14 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This very informative guidebook will bring to life your understanding of what otherwise might appear to be some big rocks in a field. I recently viewed a very important megalithic site, Stanton Drew, without this book. Even though I am somewhat well-read in this area, the site really was uninterpretable on its own. When I read the commentary in this book, my experience of the site changed and I was able to peer back through the millenia to see the site as the builders would have. This book is indispensible.
