|Enjoy a ‘Walk in Ancient Lakeland' and discover sites and monuments from the Neolithic and Bronze Ages you never knew existed. Discover the great stone circles, standing stones and burial cairns which still decorate these beautiful hills. Follow the ancient trackways linking these ancient sites and explore largely unknown areas to uncover the mysteries of the lives of our ancestors in this timeless landscape. At the same time feast your eyes over the beautiful and fascinating wild flowers and bird life, in sites well away from the busier tourist areas of the ever-popular Lake District. Sketch maps are included to help you find your way - whether to the sites down in the valleys beside modern farms and villages, or high on the still wild and remote fells. The author's own intricate hand-drawn sketches add to the appeal, depicting the many standing stones and circles raised in the past by our Lake District ancestors. Robert Harris, a primary school teacher, developed his interest in ancient history through years of walking and sketching in the Lake District.
