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

Breaking News

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.
