Stonehenge Landscapes


Stonehenge Landscapes -
Journeys through real-and-imagined worlds, by Sally Exon, Vince Gaffney, Ann Woodward, Ron Yorston

"Stonehenge Landscapes" is the largest digital analysis of the archaeological landscape and monuments of Stonehenge ever attempted. The study uses data from more than 1200 monuments. The contents of the Stonehenge barrows are collated for the first time and presented in a series of appendices. The result of this endeavour is a major phenomenological study of the development of the Stonehenge landscape from the Mesolithic to the Early Bronze Age.
