- -Rodney Castleden / Paperback 282 Pages / Published January 1993
This book is among the best overviews of Neolithic life available and presents a fascinating account of life during this period of the early inhabitants of England. Well written and covering a breadth of topics and ideas. Starting with a portrayal of the Neolithic environment, he envisions how people would react to conditions then. Using the best evidence available, he breaks away from traditional approaches to reconstruct prehistoric society. Instead of stripping away modern elements to derive Neolithic life, Castleden builds the picture of that society from its basics. The ditches, megaliths, banks, the stone circles, and artefacts are the chief source of information available in conceiving Neolithic life. One interesting missing element, which may be highly significant, are structures for defense or other evidence of conflict. There are no large collections of arrowheads or spear blades found at the henge sites.
Another interesting topic is the enigma of Stonehenge's source of the massive bluestones. The author accepts the Presli Hills source for the stone, but proposes a different way in which they could have moved to Stone Hedge. And that is by an all-sea route around Land's End. Some form of trimaran vessel could have easily made the journey, with Oxen-pulled sledges completing the final leg.
Includes illustrations, photographs, diagrams and maps.
