Britain is full of ancient wonders: not grand like the Egyptian pyramids, but small, strange places and objects that hint at a deep and enduring relationship with the mystic. This beautifully illustrated book unearths more than seventy of our most intriguing mysteries: archaeological sites and artefacts that take us deep into the lives of Britains ancient inhabitants. They include buried treasure, stone circles and geoglyphs, outdoor places of worship, caves filled with medieval carvings, and trinkets to ward off dark magic. From famous sites such as Stonehenge and Glastonbury to the prehistoric art of Ilkley Moor, the caves of Gower and the mummies of the Hebrides, anthropologist Mary-Ann Ochota explores our secret history and discovers why these places still resonate today.
