A very readable text on Creswell Crags rock art, academic and informative. Includes papers on dating techniques and geology. Highly recommended

The actual art is not so impressive - no Lascaux or Altamira here - but the implications of its very existence are fascinating. Having attended two of Dr Paul Bahn's day courses at Oxford I was keen to get this book - and was not disappointed.

Format: Paperback
How to jump across 12000 years in a few pages? Todays history of discovery is told clearly and placed in a context of other cave art finds.. There is enough speculation by the authors to provide intelligent thoughts regarding the actual images depiction and as to what they might be. It is well illustrated with both photographs and line drawings, neither of which can ever reproduce the actual vivacity of the original, but they are the next best thing. They show that art has not really developed, can it ever?, since the time of these engravings. We have jumped, but only back to where we were.

This was a comprehensive description of the caves I intended to visit. It was also a very well illustrated book. Extremely useful preparation for my trip.
