reviews of Sacred Places: Prehistory and popular imagination

'Bob Trubshaw challenges our perceptions of prehistory and asks how much of our understanding of the past, both popular and academic (mainstream and alternative) is a modern creation that has little or nothing to do with the cultures and monuments we presume to understand.'

Providing 'a timely reminder that not everything (indeed, probably nothing) in these fields should be taken as proven – whether it is a professor interpreting the past in modern terms of sacred and secular or New Agers waffling on about leylines and residual paganism, Sacred Places reveals what shaky ground they are on. And that is definitely a strength – Bob has avoided the approach that some authors have taken (whether deliberately or accidental) of attacking on set of beliefs and giving the implication that the alternatives must, by default, be true; nobody escapes his critique... '

'In can see Sacred Places being reread many times, both to reconsider the topics themselves and for general information.... One of the best books in the field I have ever read.'
D J Tyrer Monomyth Supplement
