A contribution from the sale of this product helps us to secure this spectacular and unique heritage for future generations to enjoy.
Silbury Hill is an iconic monument within the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site, and the largest prehistoric mound in Europe. Written by two authors with unrivalled information and knowledge of the Hill and combining scholarly research and readable narrative, the book tells the story of the early recognition of its importance and of the later antiquarian and archaeological investigations. Each is described and set within its own historical and political context alongside the extraordinary characters of the time.
For the first time, the results of the recent work - the collapse of the summit in 2000 leading to the re-opening of the famous tunnel in 2007 - are set out from first-hand knowledge, and the origins of the monument and the construction techniques fully outlined. The book also describes how the mound was seen and used by later communities and considers what Silbury means to people today
