From Stonehenge to Newgrange, the richest array of megalithic monuments in Europe is found in Great Britain and Ireland. The number and sheer diversity of these structures is astonishing, including massive stone rows and circles, as well as barrows, chambered tombs and earthwork enclosures.

This invaluable, authoritative overview of some of our greatest and most-visited monuments is ideal for traveller, tourist and student alike.
