Britain 3000 BC

£9.99

Product description

Were prehistoric people like us? In what ways did they differ? How did they live, what did they think and how did they see their world? This survey of neolithic British culture attempts to answer these questions by recreating the society, customs, economy, religion and ritual of 5000 years ago. 3000BC was a highly significant time in prehistory. Writing - often regarded as the ultimate hallmark of civilization - made its first appearance in the world. There was also a surge of monument building, including Avebury and Stonehenge. The author explores the purpose of these great projects and the nature of the society who built them. A cluster of preoccupations and values emerges: a preoccupation with death, an interest in deep time, a dawning sense of historic time, an acute sense of place and a self-effacing willingness to engage in projects that individuals would never see completed. The book offers a keen insight into the character and achievements of prehistoric people.
