The Megalithic Portal

While Stonehenge is one of the most recognizable megaliths in the world, the lover of these man-made stone formations will find much to admire at this Web site, maintained by Andy Burnham. The absolute centerpiece of the site is an interactive map of the United Kingdom and Ireland, divided into sections that users may click upon to obtain more specific information. After clicking on a particular section, users will be directed to another interactive map containing detailed information about each particular megalith in the region, accompanied by information about the closest village and other pertinent geographical details. Another nice feature is that numerous amateur archaeologists and aficionados offer a rating of each megalith based on its condition, ambience, and accessibility. For persons seeking to learn more about megaliths, the site also has reviews of dozens of books dealing with British archaeology and the history of human habitation in the area.
