Nigel Pennick investigates the significance of these mysterious pathways and asks if they evolved as an expression of the meaning of life. This is a complete account of ancient rock labyrinths and turf mazes, church labyrinths, puzzle hedge mazes, and modern innovations in Britain and on the Continent.
