Britain hides a remarkable native artistic tradition - mysterious
rock carvings which date far back into the misty age of stone
circles. In some parts of Scotland you can dig up the turf almost
anywhere to find the ancient rocks beneath carpeted in these
incredible glyphs. In this beautiful little book, artist and
petroglyph hunter Chris Mansell discusses the possible purpose and
meaning of these archaic and enigmatic markings, using his own
drawings alongside exquisite rare old lithographs. WOODEN BOOKS are
small but packed with information. "Fascinating" FINANCIAL TIMES.

SCIENTIST. "Stunning" NEW YORK TIMES. Small books, big ideas.
