The Long Man of Wilmington, the gigantic chalk hill-figure halfway between Lewes and Eastbourne in the downlands of southern England, has impressed and mystified generations of visitors and local people alike. Its orgins have been debated for at least two hundred years, but though numerous theories have been put forward misunderstandings and misconceptions as to its meaning and purpose still abound. In this, the first book to be written about the Long Man of Wilmington and the first major, full-length study of any individual British hill-figure, Rodney Castelden discusses in depth each of the principal theories relating to the Long Man's origins, drawing on the results of modern research and presenting an exciting new conclusion that explains not only the origin of the Wilmington Giant but also of other monuments in the surrounding Downs. This highly individual and eloquent account of one of the great English landscape mysteries incorporates much of the fascinating local history of East Sussex and will appeal to all who love the landscape, history and lore of the South Downs. The book contains many photos, drawings and maps.
