Notes on Ancient British Monuments


I. SINCE the publication of; my book “Stonehenge” some months ago I have received so much valuable information, so many suggestions and promises of work, that I feel it will be convenient if I refer to some of the points which have been thus raised. They refer to many sides of the inquiry, and indicate how very many questions susceptible of local study are raised by the idea of the possible astronomical use of the monuments.
