Reviews of the Second Edition:

"Interactive maps, photos and descriptions make this an exemplary archaeological gazetteer" - Mike Pitts, Editor, British Archaeology

Version 1.0 of Stone Circles: A Photographic Tour was a great success, earning rave reviews from all quarters, so Version 2.0 has been hotly anticipated among online site hounds. Needless to say, it doesn't disappoint. So what's new, and is it worth the expense of updating to this new version? Well, there is so much new material in this new edition that the complete programme runs across two CDs, available individually or as a 2-CD set. The gazetteer includes written descriptions and photographs of
over 900 sites, 60 or so useful maps and 130 short video clips. The interface of the earlier version, which my Mac did not always get on with, is improved, and all the sites are linked to the Megalithic Portal website which offers access to online updates for particular monuments. Megaraks everywhere will thank 3rd Stone contributor Andy Burnham and Tom Bullock for the great job they have done with this new, improved and highly recommended version of Stone Circles: A Photographic Tour. - Neil Mortimer, 3rd Stone Magazine

INTERESTS
I have a passion for travel and photographing the people and places of the world, especially the visually appealing, remote regions and antiquities associated with them. To spend a few hours alone with the impressive stones of Stonehenge bathed in full moonlight; to wander amongst the mute, hollow-eyed, intricately-carved heads of Chile's Easter Island; or just to enjoy the majesty of sunrise behind a California oak; these are delights that nourish my soul.


Tom Bullock at Merrivale Rows, Dartmoor

Stone Circles

After teaching astronomy for 20 years, I was granted a Sabbatical Leave by my college to conduct research on the stone circles of the British Isles during the Spring of 1990. I had included the subject of Stonehenge in my lectures because of the suspected astronomy incorporated into its construction, but I had never actually visited it, nor was I even aware there were over 900 other circles, many of which also demonstrated astronomical features. With books, maps, cameras (still, digital, and video) and compass in hand, hiking boots on foot, and foul-weather gear on back, I headed out for what was supposed to take a mere 5 months. But the more I remained in the field, the more excited I got. I completed my Sabbatical Report required by the college, but I returned year after year to continue the project that has become a singular passion: to locate, visit, map, photograph, and conduct basic measurements of all of the stone circles and rows in the British Isles and Europe. That there are astronomical considerations incorporated into their designs is not in doubt, as is clearly shown in the CD-ROM. But above and beyond the science of the circles, and why and by whom they were constructed, they are visually-appealing in their (mostly) isolated settings. I hope that your tour through the CD-ROM will inspire you to want to visit them as well.
