Prehistoric Avebury by Aubrey Burl
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


An account of the prehistoric stone circles at Avebury, which not only date from an earlier era but are also larger than the more famous sarsen stone circle of Stonehenge. Written by an archaeologist, the text considers aspects of Avebury's history and construction and discusses the probable purpose of these massive structures, in the process seeking to create a vivid and moving picture of their creators - a primitive people whose lives were brief, savage and fearful.
