Druids in the South-West?     Paul White

978-1-906474-65-2      £2.99    Order info

Between about 1740 and 1860 it was widely believed that ‘the Druids’ had built the stone circles of the South-West, and even what we now know are natural rock formations such as the Cheesewring. How did the mistake occur? And who really were the Druids? A serious book which will make you laugh.
