English Heritage forced to pulp its aptly titled Ghastly Book Of Stonehenge over crass errors





The Government body responsible for maintaining the nation's historic monuments has been forced to withdraw a children's guide to Stonehenge because it was littered with factual errors.

The book, called The Ghastly Book Of Stonehenge, has become a laughing stock among archaeologists because of its many blunders.

English Heritage, which receives £129million a year in Government funding, has recalled 4,500 copies of the £3 book and now plans to pulp them.

A spokeswoman said last night that an 'incorrect proof' – an earlier, unedited version of the book – had been sent to the printers.
