Hope no one minds me giving this a little plug. Steve Marshall's long awaited book about Avebury is about to go on sale on May 2nd at £14.99 (less on Amazon). Steve has undertaken much research/fieldwork around Avebury and given several talks about the springs of Silbury and Avebury. He will be talking about his book at the Megalithomania Conference on 7th May at 10am. On Sun 8th at 2.45 he will be doing the John Michell Memorial Lecture on archaeoacoustics.[...]f=cm_sw_r_fa_asp_oDr4L.W5YJ4KV

"Avebury in Wiltshire is best known as the world’s largest stone circle, but surrounding it is a wealth of ancient monuments. Captivated by its unique atmosphere, many visitors form a personal, often spiritual, connection to Avebury and its ‘sacred landscape’. What was it that first attracted people to the Avebury area more than 5,000 years ago?

Beautifully illustrated with over 400 photographs, maps and diagrams, Exploring Avebury invites us on a journey of discovery. For the first time the importance of water, light and sound is revealed, and we begin to see Avebury through the eyes of those who built it."
