    Oxbow Books 2011; US$ 35.00

    The rise to prominence of pits within narratives of the British and Irish Neolithic is well-documented in recent literature.

    The so called rhyton from Danilo, an archaeological site near the coastal town of Sibenik in Dalmatia, Croatia, is a four-legged Neolithic vessel made of fired clay that according to the consensus of archaeological opinion was most likely a cult vessel used in rituals of unknown origin and content.

  • Shadowlandby Stephen Burrow

    Oxbow Books 2011; US$ 20.00

    This is the story of life in Wales over a period of 1,500 years, as gleaned from the remains its inhabitants left behind. These people had no writing so they have left us no names and no records of their deeds. Instead we have the possessions they treasured in life, the broken remains of their bodies and the marks they left on the landscape. The people... more...

    Oxbow Books 2011; US$ 48.00

    This volume builds upon the model of the first Stone Axe Studies volume published in 1979. It explores how scholars from various parts of the world currently approach these distinctive items.

  • Submerged Prehistoryby Jonathan Benjamin; Clive Bonsall; Catriona Pickard

    Oxbow Books 2011; US$ 25.00

    Major events of human prehistory such as the post-glacial recolonisation of Northern Europe and the spread of agriculture through the Mediterranean took place on landscapes that are now, at least partially, underwater. Large parts of this submerged terrain are accessible to divers and can be investigated archaeologically. Prehistoric underwater research... more...

    Oxbow Books 2010; US$ 55.00

    The communities who lived in the Balkans between 7000 and 4000 Cal. BC have now been the focus of intensive and increasingly inter-disciplinary research for the last forty years. Dwelling between the warm, dry Mediterranean zones of the Aegean and Anatolia and the cooler and snowier Central European heartlands, these communities created distinctive... more...
