Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
Following a devastating fire in 2003, an area of moorland above Robin Hood's Bay on the North Yorkshire coast was laid bare, revealing a fascinating and previously unrecorded landscape. Brian Smith and Alan Walker have spent hundreds of hours locating and plotting the newly exposed features - with particular regard to the many curiously marked prehistoric stones. This engaging book represents the first major interpretative work on both the recently discovered and already known prehistoric rock motifs within this area. It follows the authors in a fascinating series of archaeological detective stories, studying the clues through which an insight into prehistoric life can be reached. In a collection of multidisciplinary studies the authors present their innovative interpretations of carvings, as well as offering new insights into the astronomical and calendrical associations that can be assigned to the marked stones of the North York Moors.
