Join us as we welcome Andy Burnham, author of The Old Stones - the most comprehensive and thought-provoking field guide ever published to the iconic standing stones and prehistoric places of Britain and Ireland.

In his book, Andy Burnham gives unparalleled insight into where to find prehistoric sites and how to understand them, by drawing on the knowledge, expertise and passion of the archaelogists, theorists, photographers and stones aficionados who contribute to the world's biggest megalithic website, the Megalithic Portal.

Andy will talk us through how he set about pulling the guide together, about his own affinity to 'the old stones', and offer up suggestions for the best sites to visit to get away from it all, soak up a spiritual experience, and get inside the minds of the Neolithic and Bronze Age people who created these extraordinary places.

Entry is £5. Tickets can be redeemed against purchase of the book on the night. Tickets can be reserved/purchased by calling 01373 473111, emailing or by popping into the shop (9-10 Cheap Street, Frome). Tickets can also be purchased directly online via the Eventbrite page.

Doors will open at 7pm and the event will start shortly after. Andy will happily sign books after his talk.
