Pocket Guide to Megaliths is a unique guide to nearly 50,000 Ancient and Prehistoric sites worldwide, accessing data submitted by contributors to the Megalithic Portal web resource for over almost 20 years. It has a built in database to allow navigation to sites and provides extra features such as sunset and moon phase information for all locations.
Proceeds from the app will support continuing development of the app and the Megalithic Portal Society's website, helping to increase the knowledge and protection of these precious sites.
Please note as this is the first Android version there is reduced functionality and may crash from time to time, further updates will follow.
