An exploration into the megalithic monuments of Cumbria, explaining where, when, and why they were built. Whether it is Hadrian' s Wall, Kendal Castle, or the beautiful fells of the Lake District, for thousands of years people have found a certain elegance and utility in stone. Nestled among these common relics are a multitude of massive stone monuments, built over 3,000 years before British shores had ever seen the Romans. Cumbria' s ' megalithic' monuments are among Europe' s greatest and best-preserved ancient relics but are often poorly understood and barely visited. Megalithic Cumbria aims to dispel the idea that these stones are merely ' mysterious' . Instead, you will find within this book credible answers, using up-to-date research, excavation notes, maps and diagrams to explore one of Britain' s richest archaeological landscapes. Featuring stunning original photography and newly illustrated diagrams of every megalithic site in the county, the author invites you to take a journey into a land sculpted by ancient hands.
