Wot's the pop-up like? How many pop-ups are there? Are they reasonably accurate?

Its a good simple diagrammatic book, sturdily constructed pop-up (children should'nt really be allowed near pulling tabs). Three pop-ups,1) full stone circle, 2) stoneengineers depiction of heaving up of stone in pit, 3) moon and sun disappearing behind the right stones. forgot the prehistoric Stonehenge murder of the Archer - his skeleton lies under a flap.... and the Druid myth question is laid to rest, they were'nt there. Plus a three line history timeline that gives all the simple but relevant facts. 10/10..

As one who had to collect nearly every book of Asterik - magic cauldrons, stupid romans, boar feasts and menhir throwing Obelisk, always think that this series was the best introduction to children of a facet of history, whereas, and its still about, Usbourne history series was accurate but tedious ....
