Publisher's Summary

Mazes and Labyrinths is a look into the origin and mystery of mazes. From ancient stone carvings, Minoan palaces to today's hedge-maze, Matthews chronicles the history of the maze. With devoted scholarship to "the lure of the labyrinth," W. H. Matthews has composed an exhaustive history of mazes and labyrinths from antiquity to the present. Important examples include the Great Labyrinth of Egypt with its 3,000 rooms, the labyrinth of Daedalus, the Lincolnshire and Yorkshire hedge mazes, and the Stone Labyrinths of Finland.
