A Brief History of Stonehenge, Aubrey Burl
2 A Brief History of Stonehenge
Aubrey Burl 2007 Robinson Publishing Trade Paperback. Fine. 1845295919 / 9781845295912. 
Britain's leading expert on stone circles turns his attention to the greatest example of them all - Stonehenge. Every aspect of Stonehenge is re-considered in Aubrey Burl's new analysis. He explains for the first time how the outlying Heel Stone long predates Stonehenge itself, serving as a trackway marker in the prehistoric Harroway. He uncovers new evidence that the Welsh bluestones were brought to Stonehenge by glaciation rather than by man. And he reveals just how far the design of Stonehenge was influenced by Breton styles and by Breton cults of the dead. Meticulous research sets the record straight on the matter of Stonehenge's astronomical alignments. Although the existence of a sightline to the midsummer sunrise is well known, the alignment and the viewing-position are different from popular belief. And the existence of an earlier alignment to the moon and a later one to the midwinter sunset has been largely unrealized. One almost unexplained puzzle remains. The site of Stonehenge lies at the heart of a vast six-mile wide graveyard, but before it was built there appears to have been a mysterious gap two miles across on that site.Burl argues that earlier totem-pole style constructions served a ceremonial purpose for the living - to celebrate success in the hunt.

11 Brensham Village
John Moore 1948 Simon & Schuster New York. Hard Cover. Very Good. Good. 
Following on from Portrait of Elmbury, the second in the series shows an England which now seems almost foreign in its remoteness.Evoked with an unerringly accurate eye, Brensham Village contains a mixture of action and character, conveying the life of a country community in the halcyon period between the wars.Sentimental it is, but not so as to undermine the picture of a time when a life of landed gentry, squalid poverty and routine village intimacy co-existed within a familiar seasonal routine.

12 Bright Boots
Fred Gresswell 1958 Country Book Club Book Club (BCE/BOMC). Hard Cover. Fine. Good. 
Autobiography and an anthology of quotations from the books that have influenced the author's life. It was the ambition of Fred Gresswell's mother that all her children should wear 'bright boots': though they might start out life with the muddied footwear that characterised work on the land, she was determined that they should go on to something better. This her son Fred did in a spectacular manner: from a boyhood of hard work on the family small-holding, he stumbled almost by chance into the estate agency business and went on to build one of the largest residential property companies in the country.

19 Family & Kinship in East London
Michael Young; Peter Willmott 1967 Pelican Books Mass Market Paperback. Fair. 
First published in 1957, Michael Young and Peter Willmott's book on family and kinship in Bethnal Green in the 1950s is a classic in urban studies. A standard text in planning, housing, family studies and sociology, it predicted the failure in social terms of the great rehousing campaign which was getting under way in the 1950s. The tall flats built to replace the old 'slum' houses were unpopular. Social networks were broken up. The book had an immediate impact when it appeared.
