  • Fragmentation in Archaeologyby John Chapman

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 49.95

    Fragmentation in Archaeology revolutionises archaeological studies of material culture, by arguing that the deliberate physical fragmentation of objects, and their (often structured) deposition, lies at the core of the archaeology of the Mesolithic, Neolithic and Copper Age of Central and Eastern Europe. John Chapman draws on detailed evidence from... more...

  • The Old Straight Trackby Alfred Watkins; Robert Macfarlane; Graham Hancock

    Head of Zeus 2014; US$ 7.28

    A beautiful new edition of a classic work of landscape history, in which Alfred Watkins introduced the idea of ancient 'ley lines' criss-crossing the English countryside. First published in 1925, THE OLD STRAIGHT TRACK described the author's theory of 'ley lines', pre-Roman pathways consisting of aligned stone circles and prehistoric mounds, used... more...

  • The Life-Giving Mythby A. M. Hocart

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 48.95

    Myths are the expression of a form of knowledge essential to life. Including mainly previously unpublished work by A.M. Hocart the book examines such issues as: Why a queen should not have been married before; why a guest is sacred; why people are believed to have been turned into stone; how money originated. These issues are considered as part... more...

  • The Birth of Neolithic Britainby Julian Thomas

    Oxford University Press 2013; US$ 149.99

    The beginning of the Neolithic in Britain is a topic of perennial interest in archaeology, marking the end of a hunter-gatherer way of life with the introduction of domesticated plants and animals, pottery, polished stone tools, and a range of new kinds of monuments, including earthen long barrows and megalithic tombs. Every year, numerous new articles... more...

  • Hambledon Hill, Dorset, Englandby Roger Mercer; Frances Healy

    English Heritage Publishing 2014; US$ 29.17

    A programme of excavation and survey directed by Roger Mercer between 1974 and 1986 demonstrated that Hambledon was the site of an exceptionally large and diverse complex of earlier Neolithic earthworks, including two causewayed enclosures, two long barrows and several outworks, some of them defensive. The abundant cultural material preserved in its... more...

  • Brean Downby Martin Bell

    English Heritage Publishing 2014; US$ 29.17

    Excavations made necessary by coastal erosion have revealed probably the best preserved Bronze Age settlement sequence in Southern Britain. Five metres of deposits contained five prehistoric occupation phases separated by blown sand and eroded soil. The two lowest horizons, containing Beaker pottery, were followed by a layer with biconical urns and... more...

  • Echo’s uit de Ijzertijdby Evert van Ginkel

    Sidestone Press 2014; US$ 20.99

    Even ten noorden van de legendarische Echoput bij Apeldoorn liggen twee grote prehistorische grafheuvels in het bos. Er is ooit wel in gegraven, maar niet door archeologen en met onbekend resultaat. Een ploeg archeologen van de Leidse universiteit onderwerpt in de zomer van 2007 deze monumenten aan een onderzoek. Hoe oud zijn ze, hoe zijn ze opgeworpen,... more...

  • Perishable Material Culture in Prehistoryby Linda M. Hurcombe

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 44.95

    Perishable Material Culture in Prehistory provides new approaches and integrates a broad range of data to address a neglected topic, organic material in the prehistoric record. Providing news ideas and connections and suggesting revisionist ways of thinking about broad themes in the past, this book demonstrates the efficacy of an holistic approach... more...

  • The Early Prehistory of Wadi Faynan, Southern Jordanby Bill Finlayson; Steven Mithen

    Oxbow Books 2007; US$ 75.00

    This edited volume provides a full report on the Pre-Pottery Neolithic A site of WF16, southern Jordan. Very few sites of PPNA date have been excavated using modern methods, so this report makes a very significant contribution to our understanding of this period. Excavations have shown that the site contains a highly dynamic use of architecture, and... more...

  • Neolithic Archaeology in the Intertidal Zoneby E. J. Sidell; F. Haughey

    Oxbow Books 2007; US$ 30.00

    This volume is based upon a conference which took place in 1999, reflecting the developing interest in intertidal archaeology and concentrating on the Neolithic period, as well as elements of associated Mesolithic and Bronze Age archaeology. Since then, the papers have been revised to include new discoveries and reflect the increasing interest and... more...
