5.0 out of 5 stars caught between a rock and a hard place!, 29 Jun 2003
This review is from: Rock Art and the Prehistory of Atlantic Europe: Signing the Land (Paperback)
Trying to interprate abstract rock carvings from the late Neolithic and early Bronze age is no easy task. Since the late 18th century there has been a lot of interest in so called "Cup and Ring Marks" This book however does a good job of analising there distribution along the Atlantic Seaboard (Scotland, Ireland, Northern England, France and Spain) and trying to unravel there origins and function. It makes for an engaging and truely interesting read, its well researched and thought out and there is not a single "new age" theory being banded about! These pre-historic monuments may lack the grandure of Stone Henge but play a vital role in trying to understand the way in which our ancestors veiwed the natural world and the landscape they inhabited. This book is thought provoking and engaging and I'd recomed it to any one with an interest in pre-history and Archaeology!
