Over the last twenty years, the picture of prehistoric archaeology in the British Isles has been profoundly changed by new discoveries and the development of new techniques of investigation. One of the most controversial topics has been the claim by several scientists that communities in the Late Neolithic and Early Bronze Ages devised their own geometry and units of length, invented accurate methods of observing the sun and the moon, produced a calendar, and predicted eclipses. In this book the evidence for and against the geometrical and astronomical hypotheses is collected and assessed, and though the writer considers the case proved, the presentation permits the reader to make his own judgement.
