About the book

Tombs, Temples and their Orientations


Tombs, Temples and their Orientations

by Michael Hoskin

This remarkable study sums up a decade of intensive and highly original fieldwork in the central and western Mediterranean, which uncovered and interpreted scores of hitherto unrecognised customs of orientation. It encompasses over 2500 later prehistoric tombs and sanctuaries from the central and western Mediterranean, including the Iberian peninsula, Balearic islands, southern France, Corsica and Sardinia, Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco, and Malta and Gozo.
