Ireland's Ancient Stones

A drive around Ireland's countryside reveals many ancient rocks, standing on their own or in small groups or even precariously balanced creating huge stone tripods.

The Irish countryside is rich in these reminders of prehistoric times and one has only to catch sight of a lone dolmen standing against the sky to appreciate the efforts of the ancient builders. Ireland's Ancient Stones celebrates Ireland's rich megalithic heritage from the Neolithic and Bronze Ages.

Ken McNally describes over 100 sites in detail and every site has been beautifully illustrated with a combination of colour and B&W photography with drawings and engravings, many dating from seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Ireland's Ancient Stones is a beautiful celebration of Ireland's prehistoric monuments and a tantalising glimpse at the lives of her ancient peoples.

"...illustrated with a combination of really good photographs, drawings and maps...Well produced, a fine book."
Ireland of the Welcomes magazine, book review (September/October 2007)
