Most of the mega­liths are barely weathered, those at Sten­ness still knife-edged.

Recent efforts to protect Stonehenge and to treat it as a tourisl attraction are deplorable...

How different is the approach to Brodgar!  Andrew Rafferty's photographs empha­sise

the need for every monument to retain its old spaciousness and to stale its old awe.

They also remind the potential traveller that these sites, although sometimes of tombs,

are more about life and the ever­lasting than about death. 

                       Ronald Blythe, The Tablet

Through this beautiful book, with its superbly atmospheric pictures...

the reader can come closer to the living past..
