This ebook covers Neolithic and Bronze Age places in Lancashire, Yorkshire, Cumbria and Northumberland, as well as on the Isle of Man. The northern English sites split into two main groups: there are the famous stone circles of Cumbria and the Lake District to the west, and the less well-known but equally inspiring rock art of Northumberland near the east coast.
But that's not all - there is also a multitude of rock art, megalithic and earthen sites across Yorkshire, with some hugely impressive standing stones that include our tallest at Rudston, and some magnificent henges, such as the rare triple henge of Thornborough. The Old Stones of the North of England & Isle of Man is part of a series covering the megalithic and other prehistoric sites of Britain and Ireland. The series is published together as The Old Stones: A Field Guide to the Megalithic Sites of Britain and Ireland, available as a book and an ebook.
