When we think of Britain in the pre-Roman era, possibly the first and only image that comes to mind is of Stonehenge. Yet the British landscape is covered with thousands of Stone, Bronze and Iron Age monuments that are, in some cases, equally remarkable, and, in all cases, almost unknown by comparison. Included amongst these are similar henge monuments, burial chambers, settlements, hill forts, chalk figures, and much more besides. The purpose of this website, though starting from small beginnings, is to photograph and document as many of these sites as possible, and in so doing help to raise greater awareness of the rich legacy of the Ancient Britons.
