    Major megalithic geometry work going very cheap!

    You might not all be into Alexander Thom, but his work was superb and the huge book, Records in Stone: Papers in Memory of Alexander Thom (Cambridge Uni Press) is on eBay for a bloody fiver!

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/RECORDS-IN-STONE-PAPERS-OF-ALEXANDER-THOM-1988-1ST-ED_W0QQitemZ190289521136QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Books_NonFictionBooks_NonFictionBooks_SM?hash=item190289521136&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1229|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318

    I paid the full whack for it when it first came out & it's still a beauty. It's got detailed essays by Alan Davis on cup-and-ring metrology; Margaret Ponting on Callanish; Ed Krupp on archaeoastronomy; and other excellent essays by Graham Ritchie, Euan MacKie, Clive Ruggles, etc.

    .....just thought some of you might be interested...
