Europe’s Lost Civilization: Exploring the Mysteries of the Megaliths

Set in some of the wildest and most beautiful places in Europe, the megaliths of the stone age prompt many questions: who built them and why? What mysteries are encoded in their stones?

To answer these questions, Peter Marshall sailed in a small boat from Scotland to Malta and visited all the major megalithic sites on the way. The result is this beautifully written, thought-provoking account. During his epic quest and 4000-mile voyage, Marshall comes up with some startling conclusions and his well-researched book – part adventure story and part historical detective work – is passionate, eloquent and lyrical.
