Description:

Whereas dozens, if not hundreds, of books have been written on the subject of megalithic monuments in Western Europe, very little attention has been given to this phenomenon in the Levant. In fact, nineteenth-century travelers seem to have had a better eye for them than today's tourists and sometimes better even than modern archaeologists.The book is divided into two parts, a general introduction and a field guide. The first part is necessary for anyone who wants to get acquainted with the subject and is, by and large, divided into a section on dolmens and another on standing stones. Bookseller Inventory #
