Stone handaxe
THIS small handaxe is one of the most beautiful in the British Museum. It is made from quartz with attractive amethyst banding, a difficult material from which to make tools because it is extremely hard. The toolmaker would have had to hit with considerable force and accuracy to remove flakes. Such a high degree of difficulty makes the thin, symmetrical shape of this piece a masterpiece of the toolmakers’ art.

All around in the horizon we can see round barrows or tumuli, the individual burial mounds of generations responsible for the sarsen circle of Stonehenge. There are 360 recognizable round barrows, another 130 that can only be seen from the air and fifteen long barrows, the earlier neolithic communal burial mounds within a three mile radius of this site. These barrows would have been kept clear of vegetation and the white chalk mounds would have dominated the prehistoric sky line.


The Stonehenge Story



Stonehenge is the jewel in the crown, it is a miracle of engineering and a testament of faith left by people long gone, whose memorial in stone has outlived civilizations. In telling the story of this place I will bring together the threads. Most booklets concentrate on part of the whole,this book will incorporate the facts and the legends, the history and the magic. It will I hope be a beginning...
