Summary
"People have puzzled over Stonehenge for centuries, speculating and dreaming about it, drawing and painting it, trying to make sense of it. Here is the story of the one real Stonehenge, as well as the many unreal Stonehenges that archaeologists, tourists, mystics, astronomers, artists, poets, and visionaries have made out of it. New studies in the past decade have revolutionized our knowledge of the complex sequence of structures that make its celebrated profile, in particular indicating that the monument is decidedly older than was once thought. Moreover, as Christopher Chippindale shows, we now know that the main alignment at Stonehenge was not in fact on midsummer sunrise but rather on midwinter sunset."--BOOK JACKET
