This collection of thirteen papers focuses on what it meant to be 'on the move' at different times in prehistory. Ideas of journeys and travel are integral to many traditions of interpreting the prehistoric archaeological record. Travel was after all the driving force behind the formation and transformation of identity. How ironic it is that this feature of prehistory has been so overlooked when the ancient world's 'discovery' in the Eighteenth and Nineteenth Centuries occurred primarily as the result of travel. The contributors to this volume see journeys as an integral part of prehistoric life - socially meaningful - which must be understood within their (pre)historic contexts.

Dinosaurs, indelible real life characters and a dramatic plunge down a judicial rabbit hole that occurs more often than imaginable. The book has been described as "soul searching," "a roller coaster ride" and "movie material" (it has, in fact, now been adapted as a script). It charts the unique journey of a small family, the unconditional support of community, both local and national, and lessons learned as the result of amazing entrepreneurial experiences. All in all, it tells a compelling true story of survival despite curious challenges. This book is a "Thank You" and a message of possibility to anyone who promotes inspiration through honest intent.

In this lavishly illustrated book Richard Rudgley gives a lively account of his journey across the continents and back through time in search of the lost legacy of prehistoric man. The popular view of Stone Age Man as a primitive and ignorant forerunner of ourselves is shattered as the author reveals, step by step, the myriad and remarkable accomplishments mdade before the dawn of history. His journey begins in ancient Egypt, where excavations at Abydos have unearthed hieroglyphs belonging to an age before the pharaohs, which Egtypologists have begun calling Dynasty O; to stone circles and burial chambers in Ireland which carbon dating prove to precede Stonehenge by two millennia; to the world's first town, 9, 000 year old Catal Huyuk in Turkey; to startling new research on the body of the Ice Man, the 5, 300 year old mummy found a few years ago in an Alpine glacier which reveals that acupuncture was practised in Stone Age Europe; 11, 000 year old writing unearthed on the banks of the Euphrates, the awe-inspiring cave paintings of Ice Age Europe, and finally to Indonesia where the discovery of the Euphrates; the awe inspiring cave paintings of Ice Age France; and finally to Indonesia where the discovery of stone tools that pre-Neanderhal man undertook voyages on rafts across the sea an incredible 700, 000 years

"From the icy Arctic vastness to the steamy tropical swamps of Florida, people came upon a teeming variety of animals in North America after the Ice Age. The book travels the continent region by region, introducing fascinating and bizarre beasts including ground sloths, glyptodonts, mastodons, mammoths, saber-toothed and scimitar-toothed cats, and the short-faced bear. Alongside these now-extinct animals were lions, cheetahs, zebras, and camels - animals that have long since disappeared from their North American homes - as well as species still seen today, such as caribou, grizzlies, eagles, salmon, bison, coyotes, prairie dogs, condors, alligators, and jaguars." "A wealth of fossil evidence informs the stunning computer-generated panoramas that fill the pages of the volume. Bones of the ancient beasts again have flesh and fur, unfamiliar animals again roam the landscapes, and the world of prehistoric North America comes startlingly to life."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Mobility is a fundamental facet of being human and should be central to archaeology. Yet mobility itself and the role it plays in the production of social life, is rarely considered as a subject in its own right. This is particularly so with discussions of the Neolithic people where mobility is often framed as being somewhere between a sedentary existence and nomadic movements. This latest collection of papers from the Neolithic Studies Group seminars examines the importance and complexities of movement and mobility, whether on land or water, in the Neolithic period. It uses movement in its widest sense, ranging from everyday mobilities – the routines and rhythms of daily life – to proscribed mobility, such as movement in and around monuments, and occasional and large-scale movements and migrations around the continent and across seas. Papers are roughly grouped and focus on ‘mobility and the landscape’, ‘monuments and mobility’, ‘travelling by water’, and ‘materials and mobility’. Through these themes the volume considers the movement of people, ideas, animals, objects, and information, and uses a wide range of archaeological evidence from isotope analysis; artefact studies; lithic scatters and assemblage diversity.
