  • Stone Pages - The first and most comprehensive online guide to European megaliths and other ancient sites. Here you can find in-depth information on more than 350 ancient monuments, along with high resolution photographs, descriptions, 60-degree panoramic views, a glossary, an extensive collection of links, several message boards and a free newsletter.
  • Ancient Scotland Tour - Description of an extensive tour of 207 Scottish megalithic sites, as a work made in coordination with SCRAN: a Millennium project to digitise Scotland's human history and material culture. During the 61 days of the Scottish tour, the authors published an online travel diary, updated in real time, allowing their Internet friends to follow the tour, interact with archaeologists and experts, view images from the journey, and learn about the ancient Scottish people and monuments.
  • Ancient Apulia Tour - Italy is most famous for its Etruscan, Roman and Renaissance monuments and buildings. However, there are lots of more ancient sites - standing stones, dolmens and burial chambers - especially in Apulia, the "heel" of the boot-shaped country. Unfortunately, each year a number of these sites are being destroyed. In an effort to make people aware of the importance of this issue and to share with the Internet community the beauty of these ancient monuments, the authors made a two-week tour, visiting all major prehistoric Apulian sites and publishing their travel diary online.
  • Ancient Stones of Scotland - A complete guide to the ancient stone monuments of Scotland, ranging from the earliest stone circles to the defence towers called "brochs", built during the Iron Age.
