CUMBRIAS PREHISTORIC MONUMENTS

Pre-Order   Ships 1 April 2021

Description

An exploration into the megalithic monuments of Cumbria, explaining where, when, and why they were built. Whether it is Hadrian's Wall, Kendal Castle, or the beautiful fells of the Lake District, for thousands of years people have found a certain elegance and utility in stone. Nestled among these common relics are a multitude of massive stone monuments, built over 3,000 years before British shores had ever seen the Romans. Cumbria's 'megalithic' monuments are among Europe's greatest and best-preserved ancient relics but are often poorly understood and barely visited. Megalithic Cumbria aims to dispel the idea that these stones are merely 'mysterious'. Instead, you will find within this book credible answers, using up-to-date research, excavation notes, maps and diagrams to explore one of Britain's richest archaeological landscapes. Featuring stunning original photography and newly illustrated diagrams of every megalithic site in the county, the author invites you to take a journey into a land sculpted by ancient hands. AUTHOR: Adam Morgan Ibbotson is an award-winning filmmaker based in Cumbria. Whilst he enjoys his media work, his true passion is archaeology. He has built up an extensive knowledge of prehistoric Cumbria by working alongside museum curators, and spending years researching independently. He has worked for The Wildlife Trusts, Tullie House Museum and The Lottery Fund, among others. He lives in Windermere. 150 colour illustrations
