  • Callanish The Crown

    £18.95

    For millennia the Callanish stone circle on the Isle of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides was protected by deep layers of peat with only the tallest stones protruding above the ground. Accumulating over centuries the gradually encroaching peat pre-served this ancient place keeping it safe. In the 1800’s the thick peat was cut away to reveal the true magnifcence of the stones. Callanish stone circle with its cross formation of outlying stones is the most intact of all the stone circles in Britain. It is considered by the author of this book to be the real Crown of Britain.

    This book covers the history, astro-archeology, spiritual mysteries and magical qualities of this powerful site. It includes a complete photographic guide to the site and the first published compendium of each stone as a valuable reference tool.

    The book is designed for researchers, tourists, photographers and those interested in how the electro-magnetic felds at the site interact with the solar and lunar energies at different times of the year. It is a visual delight and includes maps of the site and surrounding area and full page spreads in colour representing the many moods of this great “Stonehenge of the North.”
