Abstract: Monumental Past is a living text based on a doctoral dissertation submitted by Cornelius J. Holtorf to the University of Wales that explores the social and cultural meanings of megaliths from later prehistoric Mecklenburg-Vorpommern located in northeastern Germany. The author engages directly with current debates about the significance of monuments, events and processes in their life histories, the cultural construction of the past, the character and status of archaeology, and the aims of heritage management. The author's key arguments is presented in a electronic monograph that includes a searchable multimedia database of megaliths in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, links to related topics and ideas which are published elsewhere on the WWW, an extensive bibliography, and numerous colour images and maps.
