Bringing together the latest research on megalithic monuments throughout the world, 150 researchers offer 72 articles, providing a region-by region account in their specialist areas, and a summary of the current state of knowledge. Highlighting salient themes, the book is vital to anyone interested in the phenomenon of megalithic monumentality.
‘It becomes evident by this very brief review that these 1400-page volumes offer, quite literally, a tour through the world of megaliths, demonstrating the sheer diversity of the phenomenon, in stylistic/architectural, socioeconomic, and ontological terms, as well as disseminating some exciting new data and extremely useful overviews. I will definitely use these volumes for my teaching and research, as they offer excellent entry points to further explore megalithic phenomena from across the world, and help put regional phenomena in broader perspective.’ – Marta Díaz-Guardamino (2023): European Journal of Archaeology 26
