Sites of Prehistoric Bodmin Moor – NEW BOOK Now out

I hope you’ll all love this new book and will be inspired to explore Bodmin Moor.

Bringing alive the sites of Prehistoric Bodmin Moor, this guide is densely packed with wondrous ancient remains to visit in and around the moor. Featuring over eighty monuments including stone circles, barrows, stone rows and standing stones. Each site is richly illustrated with a photograph and a description of its location and how it may relate to the landscape and skyscape in which it is situated. So grab your boots and head out, why not discover some of the incredible prehistory that Bodmin Moor has to offer?

You can order a copy directly through this website or via Amazon (Kindle on preorder/paperback released 24 Oct).

If you wish to order a copy here please message me through the contact link above with your order details, name., address and number of copies you would like. You can pay through the link or send a cheque/PayPal me the balance 🙂

Once you have paid please message me your postal address through the contact button above 🙂

Price = £12 + £3 PP (please contact for postage rates outside UK)

Paperback £12 / Kindle £9.99

What’s the difference between amazon and direct sales copies?? – There is no difference in content, amazon offers kindle and print-on-demand versions. They do their own printing and the quality may not be as high as the ones I print and sell through the website. Although you will get the PP for free if you are a prime member so they can work out a little on the cheaper side!!




Hi, you have made it here, welcome to my site! I hope you find what you came looking for, if not feel free to contact me.

I’m Carolyn Kennett and I work in the field of astronomy and archaeoastronomy, with most of my practice being in the far southwest of the UK. I’m lucky because Cornwall has a great astronomical history and a wealth of ancient sites right on my doorstep, there is certainly enough to keep me busy!

At the top you will see some tabs, these will link to information about books I have had a hand in, the tours I give and lots of free resources which have been made along the way. If you are interested in what I have been up to there is a page listing articles I have written and links to videos/interviews etc. 

Finally, there is a blog, and I occasionally get the time to update with thoughts, musings and other things going on in my world. Please follow if you want to be kept in the know.

Enjoy and keep looking up 🙂
