An archaeologist becomes drawn into the life of the Wessex village in which he is supervising a dig in an ancient burial chamber. The haunting beauty of a local girl, the strangely ancient folk-songs of a young man in the pub . . . somehow the past seems to be reaching out to tell its story to the present. And the result is explosive.
James Long is a brilliant storyteller with a fascination for the links between the time we call "history" and the time we call the present - showing us that the two are often closer than we think.
