Synopsis

Wiltshire contains some of the most important archaeological sites in Britain.Its Prehistoric remains include the breath-taking Stonehenge, awesome stone circle at Avebury , the enigma of Silbury Hill and a large number of hillforts. Among these important sites are also found smaller, perhaps lesser-known monuments of the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages, including the King Barrow cemetery and Woodhenge. Bob Clarke, author of numerous books on military archaeology and history, takes us on a tour of the prehistoric sites in this archaeologically-rich county, using aerial photography and outstanding images, which accompany the informative text. All proceeds from this book go to the Wiltshire Archaeological & Natural History Society's appeal to update the current Bronze Age Gallery at the museum in Devizes.
