Waiting for minimum critic reviews


David Corio has systematically photographed the megalithic sites of England and Wales with the eye of a great landscape photographer, as well as with the passion of an explorer in the ruins of an ancient culture. These photographs go to the heart of prehistoric England and reveal a profound sense of place, with all the beauty that invited Romantic speculation from the seventeenth century onwards—as well as the encroaching modern world of distant urban skylines and protective barriers.
