A history of mazes, with mazes. Here social historian Julie Bounford takes us on a fascinating plunge into the world of labyrinths and mazes, with accounts from explorers, archaeologists, historians, and classical literature. Even better, you'll find more than 100 mazes you can try yourself, many of which were created for the book by artist Trevor Bounford. Discover the earliest recorded examples and legends of mazes in the ancient world; turf, stone, hedge, and garden mazes, with sites of communal rustic revels; mazes used in rituals intended to take us beyond the natural world; and the modern revival, with mazes taken to forms never previously imagined.
