Island Of The Setting Sun~~ Book Recommendation

Book Description

Island of the Setting Sun is the story of the sophisticated and enigmatic people who lived in Ireland around 6,000 years ago: the megalithic builders of the Stone Age. Archaeologists have been probing their building sites over the last fifty years, uncovering carvings, artifacts and dating materials that answer many questions about the people, yet pose even more about their purpose and genesis. This updated and revised second edition of this lavishly illustrated book presents evidence demonstrating that the builders of monuments such as Newgrange and its Boyne Valley counterparts were adept astronomers, cunning engineers, and capable surveyors.

This is a recommendation only, not a review by me.
