Book Overview

Who built Stonehenge, and why is it one of the great mysteries of the prehistoric world? Here, Caroline Malone and Nancy Stone Bernard explore the myths, legends, and lies that have surrounded the ancient megaliths since the 12th century, when people believed that the sorcerer Merlin magicallytransported the stones to England. Readers learn why the druid myth still persists, how the structure was possibly constructed, and why the site was abandoned...

Great Book

I bought 30 copies for my 7th graders to use year after year. Enough said?

Stonehenge (digging for the past) & Valley of the Kings book

I am impressed with the Stonehenge and Valley of the Kings books for a variety of reasons:-crisp, clear, appealing layout-inclusion of maps with modern cities and related sites-timeline, glossary and index-photos and drawings have clear informational captions-interesting aspects of the topic are explained on full-page "asides"-use of words like "probably" and "one theory" to explore how our understanding of these ancient sites changes as archeologists discover more-the mixture of the historical and legendary with the technical and physical information-interviews with the archeologists, which personalizes the subject and makes it real and possible for students

Stonehenge Demystified

This is the best book on Stonehenge. The text is concise and extremely well written and documented. The photos of the sites, stones and artifacts are beautiful. I especially liked the anciet time-line.Ms. Bernard answers the Who, Why and When about the constuction of Stonehenge. Anyone interested in archeolgy and problem-solving will devour this book.I am looking foward to more Digging in the Past Serries.

Fact is more interesting than fiction

Stonehenge is a comprehensive and intelligible book that delves into the past explaining facts plus the fallacious legends that have always surrounded this archeological phenomena. It helped me further understand what present day discoveries have been made' and how the legends grew up around Stonehenge. The interview at the end of the book with Ms. Malone was educational and informative. The thorough glossary was also very helpful. I would highly recommend this book to any novice or person already interested in archeology.
