    Silbury Hill, within the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site, is Europe's largest prehistoric mound. The authors of this book trace the long quest of antiquarians and archaeologists to understand the monument's origins and the techniques of its construction. They also consider how it has been seen and used by the communities living around it, down to the public reaction to the collapse at the summit in 2000 and the excavations which followed. Off-mint.
