    Leading scholars in these 29 commissioned papers in honour of Richard Bradley discuss key themes in prehistoric archaeology that have defined his career, such as monumentality, memory, rock art, landscape, material worlds and field practice.

  • Exchange Networks and Local Transformationsby Maria Emanuela Alberti; Serena Sabatini

    Oxbow Books 2012; US$ 38.00

    Throughout the local Bronze and Iron Age, European and Mediterranean societies appear to have been involved in complex systems of exchange networks which invariably affected local customs and historical developments.

  • The Tripolye Culture giant-settlements in Ukraineby Francesco Menotti; Aleksey G. Korvin-Piotrovskiy

    Oxbow Books 2012; US$ 40.00

    The crucial role that the Ukrainian 'branch' of the Tripolye culture played in shaping the historical formation of the Ukraine, and indeed that of Europe, is still not fully understood or appreciated. Although we are mostly aware of its finely-crafted and decorated pottery, along with the highly-discussed house architecture and huge settlements... more...

  • Visualising the Neolithicby Andrew Cochrane; Andrew Meirion Jones

    Oxbow Books 2012; US$ 35.00

    Prehistoric imagery is enigmatic and has been largely overlooked by archaeologists; it is only in the last two decades that it has garnered serious academic attention. This volume addresses this lacuna and discusses visual expression across Neolithic Europe. The papers in this volume result from a meeting of the Neolithic Studies Group on the topic... more...

  • Materiality and Social Practiceby Joseph Maran; Philipp W. Stockhammer

    Oxbow Books 2012; US$ 36.00

    Materiality and Social Practice investigates the transformative potential arising from the interplay between material forms, social practices and intercultural relations.

  • From Primitives to Primatesby David von Reybrouck

    Sidestone Press 2013; US$ 29.35

    Where do our images about early hominids come from? In this fascinating in-depth study, David Van Reybrouck demonstrates how input from ethnography and primatology has deeply influenced our visions about the past from the 19th century to this day – often far beyond the available evidence. Victorian scholars were keen to look at contemporary Australian... more...

  • An Animate Landscapeby Andrew Meirion Jones; Blaze O'Connor; Davina Freedman

  • Exotica in the Prehistoric Mediterraneanby Andrea Vianello

    Oxbow Books 2011; US$ 25.00

    This book examines how exotic materials were exchanged and used across the Mediterranean from the Neolithic era to the Iron Age, focusing on the Bronze Age.
