Summary
"There are about 1,000 stone circles in the British Isles. If you include other megalithic monuments such as stone rows, long barrows, cairns, cists, standing stones, and others, the number runs to tens of thousands. Yet most people can name only one: Stonehenge. This DVD is a unique travelogue in which presenter Rupert Soskin and director Michael Bott discover the wealth that is Megalithic Britain. More than two years in the making, this broadcast-standard film, written and presented by explorer and naturalist Soskin, takes you from the tip of Cornwall to the Scottish Isles on an unforgettable journey through the landscape of our ancient past."--Container.
