Book was interesting and kept my attention throughout.
According to the author, Lewis Spence,this hardcover book, "Spence believes that Stonehenge represents ancestral stones of an early tribe that changed its habitation from Pembrokeshire (source of the famous Stonehenge Blue Stones) to Salisbury Plain.
In this masterly evocation of a bygone age the reader will learn of the Druidic priesthood and its function; Druidic theology, ritual and places of worship; Druidic magic and system of auspices. The author coordinates this data with the theories of Frazer, Hocart, and others concerning the divine kingship and the worship of sacred trees.
Druids were skilled in the magical arts and it is possible that almost the entire system of Celtic occult belief had a Druidic origin. In this book, however, Lewis Spencer deals exclusively with those occult practices that are definitely slated to have issued from a Druidic source. The practices he describes in graphic detail include illusion and transformation, forms of divination, prophecy and astrology."
