Publisher Description

The mysterious standing stones and stone circles of the British Isles are the remains of a culture that existed some 4,000 years ago. The photographs in this book show a selection of the many hundreds that exist, often in remote and desolate places, throughout the country.


Archaeologists associate the sites with the Neolithic (late Stone Age) and early Bronze Age periods, but the question of their purpose remains largely unresolved.


My intention in photographing the stones was to depict them as truthfully and accurately as possible; I am not presenting in this book a new theory about the stones.


I have photographed more than 300 sites and I find that I am impressed by each one. I am excited not just by the technological feat of construction but by the presence in the landscape of those strong and beautiful stones. They seem to act as a focal point in the landscape bringing together the sky, the horizon and the land.
