  • From Prehistoric Villages to Citiesby Jennifer Birch

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Archaeologists have focused a great deal of attention on explaining the evolution of village societies and the transition to a ?Neolithic? way of life. Considerable interest has also concentrated on urbanism and the rise of the earliest cities. Between these two landmarks in human cultural development lies a critical stage in social and political... more...

  • 1177 B.C.by Eric H. Cline

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the ?Sea Peoples? invaded Egypt. The pharaoh?s army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end.... more...

  • The Past in Prehistoric Societiesby Richard Bradley

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 41.95

    The idea of prehistory dates from the nineteenth century, but Richard Bradley contends that it is still a vital area for research. He argues that it is only through a combination of oral tradition and the experience of encountering ancient material culture that people were able to formulate a sense of their own pasts without written records. The Past... 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...

    The Neolithic causewayed enclosure at Etton, cut into a Pleistocene gravel river terrace, occupied a floodplain 'island' within a relict stream meander in the Welland Valley, Maxey, Cambridgeshire. Regular flooding laid down layers of clay alluvium, mainly in Iron Age and later times, preserving a palaesol and protecting the site from modern plough... more...
