9780224064644: Megaliths

David Corio has systematically photographed the megalithic sites of England and Wales with the eye of a great landscape photographer, as well as with the passion of an explorer in the ruins of an ancient culture. These photographs go to the heart of prehistoric England and reveal a profound sense of place, with all the beauty that invited Romantic speculation from the seventeenth century onwards—as well as the encroaching modern world of distant urban skylines and protective barriers.

From the Publisher:

David Corio has sytematically photographed the megalithic sites of England and Wales with the eye of a great landscape photographer as well as with the passion of an explorer in the ruins of an ancient culture. These photographs go to the heart of prehistoric England and reveal a profound sense of "place". They point to the beginning of architecture itself in Britain, with the suggestion of both sacred and secular function, layered in the fabulous tales of popular imagination. The photographs are accompanied by text by Lai Ngan Corio, which describes the legends surrounding each megalith site, highlighting the folklore tradition, then addressing the mathematical and astronomical significance of the major sites such as Stonehenge.

From the Inside Flap:

tographic survey of megalithic sites, accompanied by an authoritative text describing the legends associated with each site and the significance of major sites such as Stonehenge.
