4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By T. Watkins on 31 July 2009
Format: Paperback
This is one of a series of slim, well-illustrated books co-produced by Historic Scotland and a small Scottish publishing house. Bill Finlayson's book in this series covers the early re-population of Scotland following the retreat of the last glacial period. Bill Finlayson has been a leading professional researcher working on the mesolithic hunter-gatherers particularly in the west of Scotland. Having worked on one of the recent major archaeological investigations, he knows well the work of other modern research programmes. He has managed a very difficult task - to write simply and accessibly, but also authoritatively on the fugitive early prehistory. And he is aided by an excellent set of illustrations - not only colour photographs of artefacts and sites in their landscapes, but also specially created black-and-white drawings that reconstruct scenarios of everyday life. And it is cheap!

Format: Paperback
Part of the Canongate series, introducing readers to Scottish history. This volume covers the prehistory of 8000-4000 BC. Accessible, beautifully illustrated, it gives a thorough introduction to the period and should stimulate your interest. An excellent little work.

Great short book to read- approx 70 pages. It lays out the information in a way that is easy to read with nice illustrations and photographs. Archaeology terms are explained and the way it is written tells a story, giving you mental images that you remember. Greata for beginners in archaeology and history.

A well written and illustrated book. These early people were the same as us, they just did different things.
Not much is known about this time in History and this book makes it accessible to many readers.

This book is well written and contains all of the data known at the time of writing. It explains archaeological techniques well thus giving the reader an understanding of the discipline as well as a picture of how the first peoples of Scotland lived.
