by Marc Aronson
Publishers Weekly Illustrated with full-color photos, this informative and perceptive book focuses on the Riverside Project's archeological expedition to Stonehenge. Aronson, who visited the team on the dig, provides a fresh first-person perspective as he explains that while Stonehenge has traditionally been viewed as an ancient temple, a team member proposes that it might have been more like a graveyard, used "to usher, to welcome, the honored dead into their permanent home." As Aronson recounts how the team interprets the data they collect, he emphasizes the value of remaining open to new ideas: "We are seeing more in Stonehenge because more people are looking, and in more ways." A revitalizing perspective on an enigmatic place. Ages 10-up. (Mar.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
