Temple in the Hills
Temple in the Hills is the story of this discovery, and marks a breakthrough in understanding the Neolithic science stored within solitary megaliths, or within collections of megaliths that define geodetic patterns across the landscape.
Temple in the Hills shows the Neolithic culture to have been intelligent, creative, determined and talented, even playful, and demonstrates how it managed to solve complex cosmological problems using only Stone Age technology. The evidence for this claim takes the form of an integrated and elegant system of astronomical, geometrical and metrological knowledge, which led to monuments that are shown to have been temples to cosmic order.
The book's core narrative also connects the Preseli Hills with Stonehenge in an entirely new way, far more telling of prehistoric capabilities than how a few bluestones ever found their way to Stonehenge.
Heavily Illustrated, many in full colour.
