[The Mystery of Stonehenge] is a very readable account of this marvellous workmanship of mysterious origin. The author notes the efforts of many specialists including anthropologists, astronomers, engineers and others, using their knowledge and modern "know-how" even to the extent of computerizing this information, to try to bring forth some evidence as to the probable origin and methods of constructing this wonder and perhaps some reasons for its purpose of erection in the now lush area of Salisbury Plain in southwest England. Whether or not any authentic conclusions were found this slim book about Stonehenge is an intriguing piece of writing [and] a fascinating book for all ages.
