  • Life and Death in the Bronze Ageby Cyril Fox

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    This is a great work by one of the pioneers of modern archaeology. The period covered is from 1700 to 700 B.C. and is mainly concerned with the author?s field work in western Britain. It deals with burial ritual ? dances, processions, "houses of the dead", the objects deposited, the building of the barrow; and it shows by line drawings and photographs... more...

  • The Prehistoric Settlement of Britainby Richard Bradley

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    This study, first published in 1978, explores the evidence for pre-Roman settlement in Britain. Four aspects of the prehistoric economy are described by the author ? colonisation and clearance; arable and pastoral farming; transhumance and nomadism; and hunting, gathering and fishing. These aspects have been brought together to formulate a structure... more...

  • Neolithic Britainby Rodney Castleden

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    The climax of the Stone Age in Britain, the Neolithic period (4700-2000BC), was a period of startling achievement. The British Isles are rich in Neolithic sites, which give us evidence of a complex and surprisingly developed archaic society. The author surveys 1100 secular and ceremonial sites in Britain, selecting some for detailed explanation; from... more...

  • The Ancient Burial-mounds of Englandby L.V. Grinsell

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    First published in 1936 and rewritten in 1953, this book embodies the results of the author?s extensive researches and fieldwork. Part one considers types of barrows and dating, their building and the cult of the dead from Palaeolithic to Saxon times. A chapter is dedicated to maps and another to fieldwork in particular, while the final bit of the... more...

  • The Iron Age in Lowland Britainby D.W. Harding

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    This book was written at a time when the older conventional diffusionist view of prehistory, largely associated with the work of V. Gordon Childe, was under rigorous scrutiny from British prehistorians, who still nevertheless regarded the ?Arras? culture of eastern Yorkshire and the ?Belgic? cemeteries of south-eastern Britain as the product of immigrants... more...

  • Hunters, Fishers and Farmers of Eastern Europe, 6000-3000 Ruth Tringham

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    Eastern Europe, in this book, embraces the area formally referred to as the ?Marchlands of Europe?, sometimes as Eastern Central Europe, and which included, when this book was originally published in 1971, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Rumania, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, East Germany and Poland. This book presented for the first time the archaeological material... more...

  • Settlement in the Irish Neolithicby Jessica Smyth

    Oxbow Books 2014; US$ 32.50

    The Irish Neolithic has been dominated by the study of megalithic tombs, but the defining element of Irish settlement evidence is the rectangular timber Early Neolithic house, the numbers of which have more than quadrupled in the last ten years. The substantial Early Neolithic timber house was a short-lived architectural phenomenon of as little as... more...

  • The Souterrains of Southern Pictlandby F.T. Wainwright

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    The archaeological monuments known as souterrains, particularly characteristic of eastern Scotland from Aberdeenshire to Fife, have long been a mystery. When this book was originally published in 1963, recent investigation on two of these types of works, at Ardestie and Carlungie in Angus had shed more light. This book combines two excavation reports... more...
