Review:Stonehenge; the Biography of a Landscape by Timothy Darvill (2007) Assessment 4 out of 10

Rather disappointing

There is quite a lot on the evidence from particular sites, but I was hoping for a much bigger study of the landscape and how its development marked changing ritual, society and economy. The suggestion Stonehenge may have been an oracle is interesting but neither substantiated nor fully explored.
