About the Author

The Megalithic Portal is the world's most-visited standing-stone website. It was set up by chartered engineer Andy Burnham in 2001 as a forum for megalith enthusiasts and to document, publicise and protect our prehistoric heritage, much of which is under threat today from development and intensive agriculture. This interactive website, run by Andy and a team of around a dozen other amateur editors, has input from thousands of contributors from all over the world, including professional photographers and archaeologists. Since 2001 they have assembled a worldwide resource of over 50,000 ancient sites and 170,000 images, serving half a billion pages.

Reviews

"A wonderful guide to the many megaliths of Britain's Neolithic and Bronze Age." --Mike Parker Pearson, Professor of British Later Prehistory at UCL '[A]s 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
