Older than the pyramids of Egypt, Stonehenge is one of the most enigmatic monuments on Earth. Despite years of archaeology, experts are still baffled as to its original purpose, its creators – the Megalithic culture - having developed no form of writing to reveal its secrets. Amazingly, although Stonehenge is the most elaborate prehistoric monument in the British Isles, it is just one of the thousands of stone circles erected here for centuries from around 3100 BC. The extent and complexity of this vast array of huge stone circles, massive earthworks, and giant monoliths, created by a people with nothing more than primitive tools, is truly astounding.

Graham argues that, with stones aligned to the sun, stars, and positions of the moon, stone circles were not just astronomical calendars, as some scholars have proposed, but were part of an elaborate system to determine precise timings necessary for the cultivation of medicinal plants. The Druids, he reveals, had medical knowledge well beyond their time, and may even have found a cure for cancer. Graham also discovers that the Megalithic people developed phenomenal memory techniques, resulting in a priesthood that became both the guardians of the stone circles and the living libraries of inherited knowledge. In his book, Wisdomkeepers of Stonehenge, Graham uncovers the long-forgotten secrets of the Megalithic people and the true extent of their astonishing achievements: a vast network of monuments, as important to the ancient peoples of the British Isles as the internet is for us today. The true purpose of Stonehenge is ultimately revealed. It was not just a religious monument, but served a vital, practical function— as a prehistoric healthcare facility.
