5.0 out of 5 stars Standing with Stones May 12 2011
Format:DVD
This is an excellent video which I enjoyed very much. It was very well researched and the information was more than I expected, having travelled widely in the Celtic lands. The personal aspect of the people making the video was also a nice touch, drawing you closer to the experience of being there. Well done! It makes me want to go back and continue exploring some of the places I missed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best guide there is July 31 2009
By Sean O'Neil - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
This DVD is perfect for beginning a journey through megalithic sites. The narrator is very energetic and funny, yet shows a depth of interest and dedication to the subject that most programs lack. He admits what we do not know (instead of postulating along old well travelled "Offficial" theory lines)....very refreshing. Also a keen observer: he notices an amazing fact about one stone that has escaped the notice of professional archeologists for decades......check it out. I have been to Stonehenge and Avebury, West Kennet and viewed Silbury Hill. Watching this, I was given deeper insight into these, as well as a sense of the sheer magnitude of sites that exist today. When you add the sites that did not survive, the scale of this building process boggles the mind! A huge undertaking by a native people.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice, But Low On Content Oct. 10 2009
By Michael Gunther - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
"Standing With Stones" is a two-hour video tour of over one hundred (!) megalithic sites in Great Britain. It's great to visit so many spots at once, but the downside is that very little time can be spent at any given place. Even Stonehenge is given only a very short scene in the video. The film's writer (and on-camera host) is an enthusiast, not an expert; there isn't much interpretation and analysis, nor even many facts, to be had on this video. (It is useful, though, to be reminded how little we really know about these ancient places). The photography is quite well done, and adds measurably to one's enjoyment of the DVD.

To summarize, this is a pleasant video that will appeal to people who would like a brief tour of (lots of) British megalithic sites. However, viewers who want more details about these places are likely to come away disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great documentary Jan. 21 2013
By James - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So I rented this through my Netflix subscription, and like it so much I had to buy it!!! The presenter goes from the south of England (Cornwall) to the very tip of Scotland, and even goes through out Ireland, and looks at a lot of the neolithic sights from standing stones to chamber tombs. If your like me and find the Neolithic history of the British Isle then this is the the documentary that you should get for your library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning July 24 2012
By John S. Hilliard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A movie which celebrates the human spirit. The stuff that dreams are made on, that invisible thing inside all of us, that spirit somehow permeates this transcendental documentary like attending a religious service...without any mention of dogma, faith, psalm or prayer. The spirituality of stone and landscape haunts our kind through thousands of years of generations here. Beautifully filmed. One could take away the deepest sense of beauty in this movie, even if not a word were spoken by it's narrator, Rupert Soskin. The Tao of Sky and Stone. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best there is on this topic. Loved it! May 4 2012
By Nicole B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
We mostly hear about Stonehenge when dealing with ancient stone constructions in the UK.
I wanted to learn about the other stone structures. This DVD has it all. Well not EVERY stone construction in the UK since there are thousands. But it offers the most possible in two hours +.
I found it entertaining, enlightening, and very educational. The host offers up thoughts about what these ancient artifacts may have been used for based on the location and construction. The petrified wood giant post in one stone chamber was a surprise since everyone thought it to be stone. The bonuses on the DVD were also very interesting as they explain much more about what is thought about these structures, not to mention what they had to endure while taking 2 years to make this documentary. I say, "Very well done guys"! They also cover Wales, England, Scotland, and Ireland. A masterpiece!
Now I must buy the book! I plan on seeing some of these in person!
