Product Description

About the Author

Human remains can answer all sorts of questions about our ancestors - what sort of diet they ate, what age they lived to, what sort of living conditions they experienced and how they died. The Neolithic is the earliest period from which significant numbers of human burials survive in Britain. This book looks at the history of the study of such burials and how new scientific techniques have massively expanded what we know about our Neolithic ancestors. As well as the treatment of the dead, issues such as health and subsistence are considered, along with evidence of conflict and also the extent to which the people of Neolithic Britain can be considered a distinct population. This is the only book specifically dedicated to human remains from the Neolithic and fills an important gap left by other books on the period.

Format: Paperback
The authors of this book approach their subject with a medical and scientific background and relate their evidence about the people of the long barrows of Britain in this light. This book complimented other books on this subject which I have bought and read over recent months. Anyone who has enjoyed reading the excellent books Temples of Stone, Neolithic Britain and Ireland, The Dolmens and Passage of Sweden, and Earthen Long Barrows will like this book too. The most appealing aspect to this book is the scientific way that evidence about prehistoric sites is analysed and presented with conclusions restricted to what can be proven rather than extrapolated to uncertain lengths as can occur sometimes when archaeologist authors imaginations run away with them. The book is obviously of a specialist interest nature, but as a lay person I would recommend it to anyone who has a more than passing interest in prehistoric matters. Like a number of similar books I am always surprised at the lack of detailed comparison of similar sites across Europe.
