Megalithic Landscapes

Standing Stones and Stone Circles In the British Isles

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

The mysterious standing stones and stone circles of the British Isles are the remains of a culture that existed some 4,000 years ago. The photographs in this book show a selection of the many hundreds that exist, often in remote and desolate places, throughout the country.

Archaeologists associate the sites with the Neolithic (late Stone Age) and early Bronze Age periods, but the question of their purpose remains largely unresolved.

My intention in photographing the stones was to depict them as truthfully and accurately as possible; I am not presenting in this book a new theory about the stones.

I have photographed more than 300 sites and I find that I am impressed by each one. I am excited not just by the technological feat of construction but by the presence in the landscape of those strong and beautiful stones. They seem to act as a focal point in the landscape bringing together the sky, the horizon and the land.

What's New in Version 1.1

Version 1.1 Changed the display dimensions to work better with iBooks for iOS7 and iBooks for Mac. The book will display double page spreads in landscape mode.
