Stonehenge

Synopsis

Who built Stonehenge, and why is it one of the great mysteries of the prehistoric world? Here, Caroline Malone and Nancy Stone Bernard explore the myths, legends, and lies that have surrounded the ancient megaliths since the 12th century, when people believed that the sorcerer Merlin magically transported the stones to England. Readers learn why the druid myth still persists, how the structure was possibly constructed, and why the site was abandoned centuries after it was built. Including numerous sidebars, photographs, and diagrams on the archaeological history of the site and an engaging interview with archaeologist Caroline Malone, Stonehenge captures the imagination and curiosity of every budding archaeologist.
