"When the landscape painter John Constable contemplated Stonehenge in 1835, he mused that literal representation of the site had "been often enough done". He was not, however, deterred. Instead, he created something utterly unique - a painting that is strangely illuminated, filled with drama, and which sets human figures against the backdrop of the stones.
"Rosemary Hill's Stonehenge accomplishes something similar. It is not primarily an attempt to answer the riddle of what the stones are, but rather a tribute to the lively assortment of people who have dedicated energy and intellect to interpreting the monument over the past three and a half centuries."*
