Mike Parker Pearson has a new book out called ‘Stonehenge: Exploring the greatest Stone Age mystery’. The ‘Bookhugger’ website has an extract from the book here:
The Telegraph says that:
Stonehenge has both the taste and the content of an authentic archaeological log-book, and without doubt will become an essential academic source.
Robert John Langdon is more critical on his Prehistoric Britain . He writes:
Stonehenge is much much, older than this rag bag bunch of amateurs known as archaeologists will tell you.
Thanks MPP, don’t give up the day job!
Brian John disputes one of the central thesis of the book, that Stonehenge demostrated national unity, by comparison with ‘Achillhenge’:
Forget all this nonsense about Stonehenge being a “symbol of unity” as proposed by MPP and his friends… might it not have been built by some wild bunch of eccentrics who were fed up with the way the world was being run by their lords and master
