From the dustjacket: "[This] books sets the various megalithic traditions into a societal context and relates monumental traditions to changing structures of social organization...[the author] shows how recent excavations have contributed much important information to our understanding of megaliths, such as the discovery of early complexes beneath passage graves, and evidence for multi-phase construction of megalithic cairns and tombs."
