Describing what monuments you can find in the British Isles and where specifically they can be found, the book explains as much as is known about the structures and why they were created as well as offering readers additional information about specific sites which are either especially interesting or especially spectacular.

The main body of the book comprises of an A–Z section which details all the prehistoric site types in the British Isles and explains what they are – for example, ‘Long Barrows’, ‘Standing Stones’ and ‘Fugues’.
