This newly revised and enlarged fourth edition brings the story completely up to date.
For hundreds of years Stonehenge has been both an enigma and an inspiration to archaeologists, tourists, mystics, astronomers, artists, poets and visionaries. The real monument has been often obscured by their imagined and claimed versions of Stonehenge.
In new chapters Christopher Chippindale describes 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 the ancient place are the practicalities of caring for a monument that is 4,000 years old, and never designed to cope with a million visitors a year. Preserving Stonehenge for the millennia to come is now the challenge.
