Publisher’s Description: 

Following the success of Quadrivium, Sciencia, Designa, and Trivium in the acclaimed Wooden Books series, Megalith is a compendium of writings about stone structures throughout history.

How do you predict eclipses at Stonehenge? Why were stone monuments built where they are? What is the meaning of the designs in ancient rock art?

In this lavishly illustrated volume, eight expert authors guide readers through the history of rock structures from Stonehenge to the stone circles in France, Poland, America, and Africa. These monuments appear around the globe, connecting the modern world and ancient times.

Packed with detailed information and rare and exquisite engravings, woodcuts, and drawings, Megalith is a timeless and valuable sourcebook for our world's oldest buildings and our earliest visual art.
