Standing with Stones

Standing with Stones

This is a wonderful documentary about Britain and Ireland’s ancient sites. A very mellow and informative watch… inspires you to get out there and explore the ancient past in your own area. It includes the better known sites but also many lesser heard of ones with stories from local folklore, the presenter’s theories and observations… a great sense of enthusiasum and awe abounds throughout the film. From Cornwall to Orkney, this is a beautiful journey through the ancient stones of our land :)

See much more about the DVD and many clips on the makers site here. Their blog is also very interesting.
