This newly revised and enlarged fourth edition of Christopher Chippindale's prize-winning classic account brings the story of Stonehenge right up to date. It describes in two new chapters the startling ideas and insights of the latest field research. In a radical reinterpretation, Stonehenge with its cold rocks is seen as the place of the dead, and another site - over the horizon - as the place of the living, built in wood, and complete with houses and paved ways. In another theory, Stonehenge is a place of healing. Alongside the quest to understand Stonehenge are the taxing practicalities of caring for a 4,000 years old site that was never designed to cope with a million visitors a year, and how to preserve the monument for millennia to come. `It would not be easy to name a better guide' - The Guardian `Splendidly illustrated ... Will for years to come be a standard reference work' - The Times Literary Supplement `All you ever wanted to know about Stonehenge...is catalogued in this humorously written, beautifully illustrated book' - The Economist
