Art as Metaphor: The Prehistoric Rock-art of Britain

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last! The book that puts Britain on the rock-art map!, 21 July 2008
It may have been a long time in coming but here is the book that collates all that is currently known about pre-historic rock-art across the whole of Britain, and very welcome it is too. The dearth of books is perhaps due to the developing nature of the subject, new sites are constantly being discovered. But now, Art as Metaphor: The Prehistoric Rock-Art of Britain justly proclaims that the phenomenon is surprislingly widespread and a great deal of research is going on. Papers from various experts in the field have been neatly drawn together by the editors so that the book can be accessed from a regional or time period perspective, as well as some interesting interpretive approaches. It is prolifically illustrated throughout (colour and B&W) and I can warmly recommend it both for its clear presentation and excellent, thorough content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book and a cracking read, 23 Jan 2007
This is a fine book that collates all the known Neolithic monuments in Wales and carefully considers them for their design traits and distribution and discusses how they were used. It serves as an authoritative guide for students, is well referenced and is an extremely interesting read into the bargain.
