Thinking through the Mesolithic,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mesolithic Britain and Ireland: New Approaches (Paperback)This volume could easily be (mis)understood to be an overview of the Mesolithic period in Britain. Instead, it is a series of essays that look at different themes with a view to what new research is telling us about, for instance, 'technology', 'subsistence', and 'landscape'. They discuss how the Mesolithic could be better understood by adjusting how the issues concerned are approached. There is no attempt to synthesise chronologically or regionally, so the student or interested reader who is not a specialist will search in vain for a summary of what is currently known either about the period c.9000BC to 4000BC in different parts of Britain, or in terms of (chronological) historical development.
