John North's new book, whose importance in its field it would be difficult to underestimate, has finally solved the riddle of Stonehenge. By an incisive combination of meticulous attention to archaeological surveys, and knowledge of the heavens as they were many millennia ago, North establishes here the function of the stones themselves and what we can know of the religion that caused them to be erected. He draws his evidence from, and his argument encompasses, many of the other prehistoric remains of Britain and the northern continent of Europe - the long barrows that are dotted over southern England, the circles of Avebury, the hill carvings of the White Horse at Uffington and the Long Man of Wilmington in Sussex. North shows how all these pieces fit together in an extraordinary way.
