The Ancient Stones of Wales by Chris Barber and John Godfrey Williams.

"Erected by megalithic men for some long forgotten purpose, these ancient stones are riddles in the landscape that have yet to be solved. This book explores this intriguing subject in considerable detail, providing descriptions of all the recognized megalithic monuments in Wales and it is illustrated with a profusion of photographs."

ISBN 0-9510444-7-8.

(Worthy of a separate mention moss?).

Definitely worthy, although the gazetteer is a little bit iffy in places, as some stones appear more than once with slightly different grid refs/spellings. Very much worth buying though (I found a second hand copy in a very decent bookshop in Blaenavon a couple of years ago).

Warning: Book contains a photo of the author standing on top of Maen Llia, which may upset those of a nervous disposition.
