A magnificent aerial survey of the relics of ancient Britain and a fascinating exploration of the mystery and legends surrounding them. Featuring 135 color photos. The landscape of Britain abounds in the haunting traces of prehistoric man: neolithic henges, Bronze Age stone circles, great hill forts of the Iron Age. Seen from the rare perspective offered in Jason Hawkes' dramatic aerial photographs, the sites and structures--from Stonehenge to the Uffington White Horse--take on new significance. Combing the archaeological records, Janet and Colin Bord decode the myths and legends of the ancient past; they also explain how each site was used, reconstructing the living patterns of early man. Jason Hawkes' many books include Country Houses from the Air, Britain from the Air, and Provence (with Peter Mayle). Janet and Colin Bord are the authors of Mysterious Britain, A Guide to Ancient Sites in Britain, and Earth Rites. 160 pp 10 x 11 1/2 135 color photos
