Standing Stones by Jean-Pierre Mohem
Book DescriptionWho built the megaliths, those massive stone structures ranging from tombs to standing stones that date back to over 4000 BC? Why were they built? How were the enormous stones transported and erected? Were these strange, sacred stones used as temples or tombs, sculptures or houses? Covering the best-known sites - Avebury and Stonehenge in England, Carnac in France and Knowth in Ireland - and also less famous examples in Scandinavia, Malta, Egypt and Spain, this book considers the special significance - architectural, scientific, religious and cultural - of these enigmatic Neolithic stone structures.

UK Kirkus Review » Part of the publisher's excellent New Horizons series, Mohem's book examines that mysterious structure, the megalith. Dating back to before 4000BC, these huge and extraordinary architectural structures have always been the source of great speculation and wonder - how were they built? What was their purpose? The author tries to answers these and other questions using examples ranging from the famous (Stonehenge, Carnac) to the less well known (the necropolis of Sine-Ngayene in Senegal). Includes extensive illustrations. (Kirkus UK)
