The Peak District is not only Britain’s most beautiful national park, but also the richest in terms of its prehistoric heritage. In this detailed field guide Byron Machin takes to the vast moorlands to explore all of the henges, stone circles and ringcairns of the Peaks. Each site is explored in detail, with locations, photographs, plans and excavation histories. From Arbor Low to the Nine Ladies every site is included, along with extra information on those sites which have been sadly lost, and those which never were.
In a detailed introduction, the prehistory of Britain is discussed and the evolution of these prehistoric ritual monuments is explained. Also explored are a variety of other sites including chambered cairns, long barrows and rock art. Finally a specially created series of guided walks take in the most breathtaking ancient sites.
