    1. Arranged into three main sections (according to chronology) this book gives some brief descriptions and archaeological details for about 6 dozen negalithic sites across Britain and Ireland. But the lion's share of the book is devoted to the brilliant photography of Max Milligan, at least one or two shots for each site, some of which is completely otherworldly. A beautiful book.
