Stonehenge Restored, by Charles Philip Kains-Jackson, circa 1880

We thought this article, adapted from Solving Stonehenge  by Anthony Johnson, published by Thames & Hudson, 2008 ISBN 978-0-500-05155-9 was well worth highlighting.

It is refreshing to be reminded, at a time when theories about the monument seem to outnumber its stones that the main knowledge we have comes from a careful examination of its actual construction and that there is not a single ‘modern’ theory that is not at least 100 years-old!
