Format: Paperback
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.

This is a beautifully presented piece of work. An up to date, well written and relevant collection of papers on recent research in the field of British Prehistoric Art. Britain has occasionally been regarded as something of a backwater in the prehistoric art area, however Mazel, Nash and Waddington put Britain clearly on the map demonstrating that there is a wide and varied range of art right under our noses. Academics, students or even the casually interested will find this a first rate and informative read.
