Stonehenge: Celebration and Subversion - Andy Worthington

This innovative social history looks in detail at how the summer solstice celebrations at Stonehenge have brought together different aspects of British counter-culture to make the monument a 'living temple' and an icon of alternative Britain. The history of the celebrants and counter-cultural leaders is interwoven with the viewpoints of the land-owners, custodians and archaeologists who have generally attempted to impose order on the shifting patterns of these modern-day mythologies.

This wonderful book takes you on a journey through the recent life of Stonehenge - filled with photographs that really bring its Spirit to life, not of a monument to be looked at as one might look at a scientific item, but as a living entity in its own right that continues to inspire generations. Highly recommended!

From a reader: I have now read half the lectures in this book and I have to say, their relevance to the Bardic grade is astounding - one coincidence falls over the next one! I recommend this book to anyone who is studying this course - it truly opens the mind further to the ideas in the Gwers and fuels a deeper understanding - especially when you are studying the elements and the male/female principles! This book is a magical world of ideas, passion and inspiration - a cauldron of a book! Magma.
