The Booklets

Not everybody has a computer, uses the Internet or even knows what a web site is and for some time I have been very much aware that there could be enthusiasts of ancient stones out there who might be interested in the subject but prefer traditional means such as good old paper. In light of this I've set myself the somewhat daunting task of producing a series of small A5 booklets listing and describing the ancient stones in each of the four areas that this web site covers.

While it took me a long time to actually put pen to paper, I've finally started work on the first booklet, The Ancient Stones of the Lothians. This volume will cover most of the sites listed online and will take in, geographically, West Lothian, The City of Edinburgh, Midlothian and East Lothian with about 60 or more sites described. The booklets will follow the same style as the entries on the web site and will also include a small photograph of each site. However, at end of March 2008 I'm only about 25% of the way there, so publication is some time away.

The Ancient Stones of the Lothians, is the first in a series of guides that will eventually include the ancient stones found in the adjoining regions, namely the Scottish Borders to the south, the Kingdom of Fife across the Firth of Forth to the north and finally Dumfries and Galloway to the south west. The next booklet planned will cover the Scottish Borders. The booklets will be available for purchase at local outlets in Edinburgh, around the south of Scotland and also online from this site as well as anothers yet to be defined.
