#NationalMapReadingWeek !

As 17-23rd October marks National Map Reading Week, here at James Clarke & Co. / The Lutterworth Press, we are taking the opportunity to brush up our navigation skills!

In association with Ordnance Survey, National Map Reading Week develops the opportunity for the next generation of map readers to understand how a flat piece of paper can show the real world. Map reading also improves spatial awareness in children, and is a crucial life skill for adults.

At James Clarke & Co, we have mapped both the land and the skies in A Guide to Glastonbury’s Temple of the Stars by K.E. Maltwood an account of the author’s discovery of prehistoric man-made ground patterns in the Glastonbury area and their zodiacal significance.

In recent years detailed archaeological study has shown that in parts of the world prehistoric man had a far deeper understanding of astronomy than traditional historians were willing to accept.

Glastonbury has always been at the heart of legends of chivalry and sanctity dating back for beyond written records, and has long excited the interest of scholars and seers. Yet it was not until the advent of aerial photography that its most dramatic archaeological secrets were revealed.

From studying these photographs and comparing them with detailed maps and the evidence of myth, Katherine Maltwood investigates these exciting discoveries and their meanings.

In this book, she reveals her discovery of a vast and complex pattern of figures in the contours and landmarks of the area. They form, in fact, a huge land chart of the Zodiac.
