What I like most about Burl is his writing style , simply very readable , not something I could say for most archaeo writing today. The subject matter was usually interesting too . Imo we owe him a great debt .


Yep, very readable, and i've always liked the fact that you have to read closely.
It's like he delights in saying something that will trip you up, unless you have carefully read and understood what has come before. Theres a touch of the mischievous there, like he's not giving it away for free, you have to apply yourself.

I saw him talk at the museum in Devizes, a good few years ago now, the title was 'The Invisible Stone Circle'.
