A country walk in Wales often involves an encounter with the past. There are countless prehistoric sites and monuments scattered throughout its beautiful landscapes. Although they are not found in great numbers, there can be little doubt that the stone circles erected by the Neolithic and Bronze Age communities of Wales play a significant part in this rich prehistoric legacy.
Julian Heath was born in Liverpool and was educated at Liverpool University, where he studied Archaeology. It was here that his ongoing fascination with life in prehistoric Britain was founded and he has a particular interest in the prehistoric archaeology of north-western Wales. He has previously written Ancient Echoes (Gwasg Carreg Gwalch, 2006) and Warfare in Prehistoric Britain (Amberley, 2009).
This book is mainly intended as an introduction and guide to these compelling places, to encourage you not just to read about the circles, but to go out and visit them. Maybe you will gain some insight into the circles, and undoubtedly you will come across some of the most glorious countryside in these islands.
