THE HENGE MONUMENTS: Ceremony and Society in Prehistoric Britain - In a brilliant series of excavations, principally at Durrington Walls, Marden and Mount Pleasant, Dr Wainwright discovered that the major henges had once contained enormous circular timber structures. What had they looked like? Were they roofed or open to the skies? And why indeed had they been built? This book discusses these questions in detail, and looks at the henges not only as great feats of engineering at this early period, but as the social and ritual focus for whole communities.
