Cumbria's Prehistoric Monuments [9780750996686]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Whether it is Hadrian's Wall, Kendal Castle, or the beautiful fells of the Lake District, for thousands of years people have found a certain elegance and utility in stone. Nestled among these common relics are a multitude of massive stone monuments, built over 3,000 years before British shores had ever seen the Romans. Cumbria's 'megalithic' monuments are among Europe's greatest and best-preserved ancient relics but are often poorly understood and barely visited. Megalithic Cumbria aims to dispel the idea that these stones are merely 'mysterious'. Instead, you will find within this book credible answers, using up-to-date research, excavation notes, maps and diagrams to explore one of Britain's richest archaeological landscapes. Featuring stunning original photography and newly illustrated diagrams of every megalithic site in the county, the author invites you to take a journey into a land sculpted by ancient hands.
