The book brings together over 100 black and white engravings from one of the eighteenth centurys most remarkable antiquarians, William Stukeley. Stukeley was the first man to study in detail the grand prehistoric sites of the Britain in his three brilliant books.

These were Stonehenge: A Temple Restord to the British Druids, Abury: A Temple of the British Druids and Itinerarium Curiosum - a tour around the monuments of the UK covering everything from natural wonders to Medieval crosses. For the first time, many of Stukeleys detailed drawings, hitherto incredibly difficult to get hold of, are put together in an easy to use format.

The book is divided into four main sections with an Introduction covering Stukeleys life and works, a chapter each on Stonehenge and Avebury, and finally a range illustrations from Itinerarium Curiosum covering sites such as Figsbury Rings, Glastonbury, Old Sarum, Kits Coty House, Stanton Drew, Boscawen-Un, Meini Gwyr, The Merry Maidens and The Devils Arrows. Published by Green Magic, the book is a must for anyone interested in the prehistoric sites of Britain and well worth the price.
