    1. What do Stonehenge, Iberia, the voyage of Jason in search of the Golden Fleece and the lost Atlantis have to do with the Milky Way? How can we read the megalithic art in a way that could offer us a meaningful insight into human past? What do we really know about the prehistory of our civilization?Manuel Vega undertakes a courageous task: he attempts to answer such challenging questions by exploring how the Megalith Builders developed into a geopolitical entity with a solar-cosmic religion and sp [...]


    2. I received my copy from the generous author. Thank you!In the preface to "Sailors of Stonehenge", Manuel Vega is emphatic that this book is not, nor is it intended to be, a scientific work. That said, a beginning understanding of astronomy or a reference source such as a library book or the internet will, I think, make reading this book more rewarding. I was fortunate to have some exposure to astronomy in high school and college, and I believe it helped me to really appreciate what the author is [...]


    3. As I always say, I got this book for free. The author was kind enough to send me a copy in exchange for a bit of editing. While doing my assigned pages I also perused the rest of the book for the purposes of reviewing. Despite that very kind consideration by the author I give my candid feedback below.Many times when reading a book one can’t help but wish you could tinker with it a bit. This book has a lot of really good qualities that make it a fine reference for Neolithic stonework. The autho [...]


    4. Sailors of StonehengeBy Manuel Vega Independent PublisherAugust 31, 2012ISBN 1479169234/ 9781479169238166 pages5 StarsThis is a must have book for any person or student with innate interest in history, anthropology, mythology, or the celestial and Atlantic origins. “Sailors of Stonehenge” could act as a standalone college history course. Society has long been intrigued with the various historical monuments such as Stonehenge, Avebury, and Carnac and as technology advances; some light is bein [...]


    5. I entered the competition to win a copy of this book because I have always been interested in alternative history and astroarchaeology, and this seemed like something right up my street. It was only after I won a copy that I had a bit of a panic, because I realised then that I would have to write a review of it. Now, I do write reviews of other books that I read, but they are rather more for myself than from any expectation that other people would read them. Here though, the author was offering [...]


    6. (there's an edit, just below the main review, noted with an asterisk)I won this book at a first-reads competition. As many of you know, it has a variety of books that are of diverse genres. I usually read anything fiction related, but this one caught my eye because it seemed to be a mixture of pre-history, archaeology, astronomy and myths, all of which make me delve into them and want to explore their mysteries. The genre here is unspecified. The author himself says so at the preface. It is neit [...]


    7. I loved visiting the megalithic stones and standing stone circles (Druid Circles) on the western coast of Ireland. My reasoning for visiting them was simply personal, perhaps because I love antiques and the stones are about as old as you can get, and also because I loved Diane Gibaldon's 1st book, "The Outlanders" (and subsequently the series) which was based on similar old stones. Now after reading Vega's book, I wish I had also visited Newgrange while in Ireland. I've also always wanted to vis [...]


    8. The book explores a far-reaching and highly researched original idea. My main concern about the hypothesis proposed, which is dependent upon astronomical observations, is that often when I have visited sites likes Avebury and Stonehenge, it has been cloudy and/or raining. For the megalith builders it must have been frustrating, at least, to arrive after a multiyear journey at eg Avebury for a lunar standstill to find that it was bucketing down and that there was not a star to be seen. Neverthele [...]


    9. First Reads Giveaway2/5As a college student, I've had to read a lot of journal articles and books written by grad students and post-grad doctorates. And thus, I've developed a radar that divides these books/articles into two categories. Category one are the ones that are genuinely easily accessible and interesting; something I would read for fun even if it wasn't for class. Category two are the ones that are overly technical and pedantic; something to skim through so I can form enough of a vague [...]


    10. I won this book through First Reads.(Please see edit towards the bottom of this review for comments regarding the revised edition of this book.)The author kindly sent me an English copy of this book as well as the Spanish copy. This review covers the English copy of the book as it would have taken me considerably longer to read the Spanish Edition.I wanted to enjoy this book so much more than what I actually did. I love history, and thought that I would get a lot out of the book. To an extent I [...]


    11. I am reading this book in minute detail as I am helping Manuel proofread it and change various elements of the layout as well as correcting some minor grammar slips and improving the choice of syntax occasionally. I won't write a proper review of it until I have completed that work and then gone through the revised edition with him. I wish I were able to achieve the fluency he has in a non-native language but there are inevitably difficulties he has encountered in English. It is such a pig of a [...]


    12. This deeply thought-provoking, fascinating book is so profoundly affecting you cannot help but loose yourself within the pages!! There are many impressive stone monuments, symbols of the past and myths that all shape and define our richly detailed history. This book questions the fact behind the fable, uncovering the past and how events have shaped our future to create the extraordinary world that we live in today. The origin of civilization itself is constructed by deep-rooted foundations that [...]


    13. This is a fascinating book which proposes a new and interesting theory regarding Stonehenge which offers explanations that I have never considered before, and yet to read them, and the authors reasons for them truly does make a great deal of sense. As a person who has a long time interest in Stonehenge and other similar megalithic sites I was very excited about this book, and loved the fact that I learned something completely new on the subject. A couple of the things which I really enjoyed was [...]


    14. I am of two minds about this book. I do like to see speculative archaeology books. I think we do have to step outside the realm of the strictly hard science point of view when trying to understand prehistoric cultures, in order to begin to make sense of cultures which we cannot approach through written records.I do begin to get uncomfortable; however, when speculation get piled on speculation reaches a point where the final point seems to reach too far. I felt that this book gained momentum from [...]


    15. This book takes the reader on a riveting journey back in time to a period shrouded in mystery and lore; to the formation of the ancient monuments of Stonehenge, Carnac, Avebury, and others. For many, these megalithic structures have captivated the imagination, whetting our curiosity as to their meaning, as well as their builders' motivation for undergoing such a daunting task. Manuel Vega approaches the subject with sensible reasoning and clarity, presenting an intelligently persuasive theory as [...]


    16. First I would like to say thank you to the author, Manuel Vega, for being kind enough to send me a copy of his book, "Sailors of Stonehenge"."Sailors of Stonehenge" is a fascinating account of history and myth written in a very perceptive way. In his book he discusses, in-depth, about ancient civilizations and the Megalith Builders. He shows great insight as to how many of the ancient myths, such as Jason and the Argonaut and the city of Atlantis; coincide with the historical practices and cerem [...]


    17. I would like to first thank the author, the publisher and for allowing me an ARC of Sailors of Stonehenge. I was on a fine line throughout the entire read of the book. This is not a book for your random reader, you have to have a decent understanding of the topic if you are to enjoy this book to its fullest. Im not saying that everyone would not be able to read it, they just would not understand it to its full potential. That being said I enjoyed the views that were presented as well as the tec [...]


    18. This was the first book I've ever read on this subject matter and I thought that the premise was intriguing. I was a bit worried at first as I wasn't sure whether or not I would understand it. Happily, I could which is why I gave it 5 stars. It is written in a very intelligent, thought-provoking way and yet it was easily accessible to someone like me who enjoys historical non-fiction, but has no scientific or academic experience with the subject. My knowledge in astronomy is also severely limite [...]


    19. Being a bit of a history buff, combine that with the fact that I love a good twist and this book was just begging for me to read it. I received a copy through a give-a-way, but if I hadn't won a copy I would have bought one. Any time you have an author try to explain a phenomena of history there are those who will poo poo the idea or punch holes in the theory. Yet this is what make reading books and articles on these "histories mysteries" so much fun. For such and original idea with well thought [...]


    20. El autor recorre el camino de los antiguos pensadores, vuelve al pasado através de las leyendas, alza la vista a los astros para tratar de explicar tal vez lo inexplicable. El inicio de una aventura exitante llamada civilización. Porque donde quiera que se decida iniciar; ya sea mirar atrás en el tiempo, o alzar la vista al espacio profundo y pensar que rije nuestro destino. Es igualmente magnífico para nuestras mentes limitadas que solo nos queda maravillarnos con las huellas que dejaron nu [...]


    21. I received this book from the author to edit a couple of pages. I intended to just browse the beginning of the book and then reply about the pages. It didn't work out that way at all. Instead, I became engaged in the subject and the connections between the constellations and structures remaining from past civilizations and the politics, cultures, and mythology of those civilizations. The compilation of evidence is impressive and intriguing. This is not a light read but well worth the time as you [...]


    22. The subject of this book, and the imagination that it took to undertake such a work is really awesome. What made me struggle with this work was my lack of knowledge about the subject matter, and some editorial issues where the language just didn't flow well. Extremely well researched and a real plethora of information, but hard to disseminate that information, and hard to enjoy the argument because of language choices.


    23. A very interesting read.This isn't my background, so I made slow progress at some parts, but I enjoyed the book very much. It presents a plausible and exciting theory, and as a Celt, born in Scotland of Irish descent, it somehow spoke quite loudly to me. I think I will read up more about the subject matter to give myself a better knowledge of more'conventional' theories, and then come back and read it again.Good book.


    24. Well written, thought provoking and a tad drier than I usually choose to read. Over all interesting material, excellent use of images and figures not only worked into the text but also clearly referenced. I appreciate all the research put into this book. I guess I was looking for a more narative version.Can't put a date finished as I have not gotten there yet.


    25. Manuel Vega's book was a great read. I enjoy reading books about ancient civilizations. I actually read the book twice because there is a lot of good information and ideas to think about in this book. If you like reading about old civilizations and ancient megalith builders then I would highly recommend that you read Manuel Vega's book "Sailors of Stonehenge".


    26. Compelling insight behind the mysteries of megalithic structures. It is useful as a study and reference tool.I would recommend it to mythology fans, history buffs, and individuals who wish to further their academic studies on ancient sites.


    27. Title of the book: Sailors of Stonehenge The Celestial & Atlantic Origin of CivilizationAuthor: Manuel VegaPublisher: Independent not availablePublishing Date: 2012ISBN: 9781479169238Summary: Could the legend of Atlantis be far simpler than we thought? By means of a novel and simple interpretation grounded in the stars, Manuel Vega presents a compelling case to answer this question positively. In Sailors of Stonehenge, Vega cruises the prehistoric times to solve the mystifying puzzle of the [...]


    28. I have never read a book like this before. My very limited understanding of astronomy made the first few chapters difficult to get through, but the numerous figures throughout were helpful in this regard.The basic premise of this book is that ancient (like 5,000-1,200ish B.C.) megalith-builders (ie creators of stonehenge and similar/related sites) had a far more complex and intelligent culture than might be the common misconception. In painting a picture of what this culture might have been like [...]


    29. I received this book after being solicited by the author to read and review it. I will not let that affect my review. I also did some independent research on what is actually known about the culture(s) that built megaliths (very, very little). This is an ambitious and far-reaching book, postulating theories that connect all of the major megalithic structures found in Europe and North Africa. It is wildly imaginative and speculative, creating scenarios based upon astronomical observations past an [...]


    30. First and foremost, I am in no way attempting to be snide or critical in the initial paragraph of this review; I simply want people to understand my way of thinking which ultimately leads to the review of “Sailors of Stonehenge.” Second, I would like to thank the author, Manuel Vega who offered me a copy of this book even though I had not been chosen to receive a copy through the giveaway. I promised Mr. Vega a review in return and I hope that the following review will clarify to the masses [...]
