Cornwell takes us back to the days before recorded history in a historical tale of three brothers who pursue power, one physically, one spiritually, and one in the creation of Stonehenge. Between battles for survival and for the favor of the gods, the listener learns how the gigantic stones were moved, shaped, and erected into the astounding stone circles that stand in Great Britain to this day. George Guidall's performance is wonderful as he becomes the inspired priestesses and enraptured priests or tells of the travails of moving tons of stone with leather ropes and stone sledges. As the tale progresses and Guidall's voice embeds itself in the listener's ears, both become more involved in the past and the unfolding tale of engineering marvels and the fates of the peoples of Stonehenge.
