Scholarly and Exciting.,
This review is from: The Significance of Monuments: On the Shaping of Human Experience in Neolithic and Bronze Age Europe (Paperback)
I enjoyed this book very much and had difficulty putting it down.
Links were made between houses to live in and monuments, which threw light on the possible meaning and function of monuments. Evidence was drawn from archeological studies in the UK and Northern Europe spanning the period from the megalithic to the late neolithic.I would describe it as a scholarly book with a strong empirical approach. At the same time the implications drawn from the evidence are exciting so that it felt a bit like reading a detective story.
It is well written so that as a non archeologist I was able to follow it without difficutlty. At the same time it is an academic book with a lot to offer the established archeologist.
