Circles of Stone : The Prehistoric Rings of Britain & Ireland
by Max Milligan (Photographer), Aubrey Burl
Categorized by the publisher as archaeology-history-photography, Circles of Stone does indeed straddle all these subjects. The volume is in itself a work of art, a stimulating introduction to a fascinating aspect of prehistory and a useful work of reference for anyone with an interest in ancient monuments. Fabulous photographs of 70 stone circles from all over the British Isles are accompanied by a factually rich text. The author, an established authority on prehistoric megaliths, gives an interesting impression of how the stones have been variously used and perceived through their long histories. While allowing legend a voice, this text is not the place to find detailed speculation on prehistoric rites or ancient astronomy: its scope is more pragmatic and it includes details of the form and location of each monument and other interesting sites. Chronologically arranged, the selection begins with the circles of the Late Neolithic and ends in the Middle Bronze Age, showing a great variety of form over 2,000 years. There is variety, too, in the photographic views, from panoramas to zoomed-in textural detail. The photographs themselves are dramatic. Taken in many different light conditions, they often capture the stones at their most evocative moments, showing how the illumination of the sun and moon and the form of the surrounding landscape is a vital part of their aura--just as was the case in prehistory. --Karen Tiley,

When Time Began
by Zecharia Sitchin
The Architects of Stonehenge
They came to Earth thousands of years ago to usher in mankind's first New Age of scientific growth and spiritual enlightenment. Under the guidance of these ancient visitors from the heavens, human civilization flourished -- as revolutionary advances in art, science and thought swept through the inhabited world. And they left behind magnificent monuments -- baffling monoliths and awesome, towering structures that stand to this day as testaments to their greatness. 

In this extraordinarily documented, meticulously researched work, Zecharia Sitchin draws remarkable correlations between the events that shape our civilization in millennia past -- pinpointing with astonishing accuracy the tumultuous beginning of time as we know it . . . and revealing to us the indisputable signature of extraterrestrial god indelibly written in stone.

Uriel's Machine : Uncovering the Secrets of Stonehenge, Noah's Flood, and the Dawn of Civilization
by Christopher Knight, Robert Lomas
Modern scientific investigations show that Earth has been hit many times by objects such as comets and meteorites. Laboratory work on comet impact effects demonstrates that comets could cause tidal waves to exceed three miles tall and near 400 miles per hour. In the last 10,000 years, there have been two impacts of such proportion: a seven-fold impact into all the world's oceans around 7640 B.C., and a single impact into the Mediterranean Sea about 3150 B.C., the time of Noah's Flood. Uriel's Machine proves ancient Europeans not only survived the 7640 B.C. flood, but developed a highly advanced civilization dedicated to predicting and preparing for future meteoric impacts.

by Robert L. Roy
Ever had an irresistible urge to stand a dozen seven-ton stones upright in a circle? If so, this fascinating how-to book could make your dream come true. Robert Roy is a man obsessed with megaliths--structures and monuments constructed of large, often unhewn stones. From the gorgeous cover photo of a stone circle in New South Wales, Australia, to the extensive closing glossary of terms, he's packed Stone Circles with all you'll ever need to gain the inspiration to create a megalithic structure. You'll also find the instructions and know-how to carry your plans to fruition.

Even if you have no intention of circling up, his tour of famous stones circles and their histories is well worth the read. --P. Randall Cohan -
