Stonehenge in Pictures Hardcover Book - By English Heritage

Stonehenge is one of the wonders of the world, a symbol of ancient achievement and a testament to the skills of our distant ancestors. It remains a place of great mystery and, in its simple yet powerful structures, a place of haunting beauty. It is unique amongst Neolithic monuments, there is nothing like it anywhere else in the world. Today, nearly a million people a year come to brooding, wind-swept Salisbury Plain and marvel at the henge's great age, the size and arrangement of its iconic stones and the extraordinary ingenuity of its prehistoric builders. This stunning album captures that beauty and the many moods of Stonehenge, using familiar images and new photography to show the stones and their setting from every angle. Each spread includes a 'compass' to show the direction of the photograph. The majesty of the monument is captured in every season, through wintry mists and at the setting of the sun on mid-summer's day. This is a perfect souvenir of this World Heritage Site.
