New discoveries: the purpose of its alignments & shadow-fields, not only summarizes all the important facts, it contains really lively graphics that lets you see at a glance precisely what this site was designed to observe.

This ebook is designed to give travellers and everyone interested in Stonehenge a really clear understanding of not only the What but also the Why of Stonehenge. You can get a real feeling for the motivation of the Megalithic priests in creating its complex alignments through such vast effort. But before going through all this, the ebook shows the context of Stonehenge in the Salisbury Plains, such as Bluestone Henge, Woodhenge and Durrington Walls. There is a concise step-by-step guide to the phases of development of Stonehenge.

So you get to know all the key physical features of Stonehenge. But then the fascinating religious-spiritual motivation for building this great Megalithic site is explored. The mainstream theory that it was mainly as a site for burial and after-life ceremonies is considered, but then the overwhelming evidence that Stonehenge was primarily a sophisticated celestial observation place is pointed out.

The celestial cycles that it monitored are explained, such as the lunar node rhythm of 18.6 years, solar and the lunar cycles, and eclipses. But Pryor also goes on to present an amazing idea- that the huge stones used in its construction were designed to deliberately create extensive shadow-fields.

Just like the mysterious stone chambers of Cornwall and Carnac in France, the shadows of Stonehenge were places where the Druids carried out their contemplations into the kind of energies present at the solstice and equinox. Pryor also includes a terrific section evaluating the possibility that priests from Mycenaean mystery sites visited Stonehenge.

His insights into the stunning sacred gold dagger found near Stonehenge makes for gripping reading. Pryor objectively presents the conclusions of leading archaeologists about Stonehenge, acknowledging the value of their conclusions, but also showing convincingly flaws in some ideas they present. It is also a must-have book for any reader interested in this great Megalithic site, offering insights of real significance into this fascinating place, insights found nowhere else.
