Product Details


“A wonderful guide to the many megaliths of Britain’s Neolithic and Bronze Age.”
—Mike Parker Pearson, Professor of British Later Prehistory at UCL

“As if by magic, along came this remarkable guide, a glorious celebration of standing stones […] attractively laid out by region with many good photos […] It’s well done, but there is something else which makes it extraordinary. Its editor is the founder and editor of the Megalithic Portal, ‘the world’s most-visited standing-stone website’. He has devised the book’s contents around what the website has shown to be most popular, and the whole thing is a collaborative venture of browsers, travellers, visionaries and scholars, all given free rein. Vicki Cummings has written a long, and very good introduction, and other well-known archaeologists pop up among the geomancers, dowsers and bog waders with no favours […] The reader is left to judge for themself, with powerful effect.”
British Archaeology magazine

“Lavishly illustrated with fab photographs. A great guide, I was very very impressed.”
—Howard Hughes, TalkRadio

“Destined to become a classic of its kind.”
Psychic News

“[A] must for the bookshelves of everyone who wants to learn more about the people and places
that have shaped our land.”
Cotswold Life

“This is a masterful resource of information about these marvelous ancient sites and a valuable research tool for anyone with an interest.”
Phenomena Magazine

The Old Stones is one of those wonderful books we return to time and time again. With each perusal we’ll discover new sites to visit and absorb more interesting facts.”
Backpax Magazine

The Old Stones provides a fascinating detailed guide to all the known megalithic sites of Britain and Ireland […] It is an indispensable reference work, and is especially valuable as a companion to visiting these—sometimes difficult to find—ancient monuments.”
Edinburgh Life Magazine

“This 400+ page field guide of over 1,000 sites does everything it promises and is another dedicated testament to the might of the ‘amateur’ […] The production values are remarkable […] This is most definitely another for the Christmas stocking—alongside a pair of thick socks, sturdy boots, and gritty determination.”
—Rob Ixer, Current Archaeology magazine

“This comprehensive guide to prehistoric sites in Britain and Ireland is unparalleled. […] impressive and eye-opening—it truly is a book worth owning.”
Scottish Field magazine
