During that time many notable advances have been made in British prehistoric archaeology, and in particular the understanding of Stonehenge itself has been much enlarged and illumined by excavations carried out there since 1950. The purpose of this book is to present to the ordinary reader the results of this recent research, to reinter- prêt the findings of earlier excavators, and to give a comprehensive account of the monument and its significance within the wider framework of British prehistory.”
