THE BOOK
Some of the ideas discussed in this blog are published in my book called "The Bluestone Enigma" -- available by post and through good bookshops everywhere. Bad bookshops might not have it....

Darvill and Wainwright chapter available online



I had not realised it until now, but the big Darvill and Wainwright chapter on the Neolithic and Bronze Age (from the first volume of the Pembs County History) is available online as a PDF.

Here it is:

eprints.bournemouth.ac.uk/26806/1/Darvill%20%26%20Wainwright%202016.pdf

Happy reading! You will need to read it in landscape format, since the PDFs are for double page spreads.

If no one bought books, then there would be no more books written, and none to download.

Sad.

True, but this one costs £35 -- not many people are prepared to pay that sort of price....... and academics like TD are keen to promote their work by making PDFs available via the internet....

I'm writing a new book, the title of which is 'Little Shits That I've Known', it's 3 inches thick already, but do you think it will sell?

BRIAN JOHN said...

It's called niche marketing. If you include 582 little shits in your book, just print 582 copies on the basis that all of them will want to buy a copy. No surplus stock, no risk, and you are guaranteed to make a fortune......

Whilst the factually accurate parts of this work are of interest and value, it would appear that anything relating to Stonehenge and the Bluestones still resides within the "Oh dear" category.

As a major fan of Darvill's "Stonehenge was a giant Xylophone" hypothesis one was most disappointed to see it not mentioned in the text? Like Darvill, I really am convinced that the Stonehenge Xylophone was the main means of communication with the city of Atlantis. The remains of which as any fool knows is located 3 miles south of Portland Bill!

I'm also quite sure that i'm not the only disappointed party! Britain's former premier xylophonist, the late great Sir Patrick Moore, must be spinning in his grave at such a major omission in a supposedly significant scientific text!

To be frank, Portland Bill's not that far from Bournemouth is it?

Not much of a xylophone man, myself....... give me a good Shostakovich symphony any day. But I tend to agree on the "Oh dear" parts of this chapter. Will do my review in due course.....
