|Description ||Mesolithic Lives in Scotland by Graeme Warren.|
What a easy book to reed plus at the end of every chapter it has a review with further reading references plus an interjection this is done as a reading aide to help you remember what you have just read. Sounds confusing l know but no this makes it a very enjoyable read.
The Mesolithic period in Britain gets over shadowed by the later Neolithic and Bronze ages. The Mesolithic was 5000 years in the making and at this time Britain was still joined to mainland europe a stretch of land called doggerland which joined us to Europe, and finally separated its self in 5000BC and we became a Island .So much as been lost under water from this time of the hunter-gathers that what is left is a little percentage of what these people used to live. lts perhaps is a general preconception that these people were less advanced at living then Neolithic/Bronze Age people. With Graeme Warren addressing this issues with a hands on approach, it is a great introduction to the Mesolithic people of this land and concentrating on Scotland has a whole.
After reading this book l feel like l have been transported back in time to live with these people in Scotland at this time for a short period, learning how to make tools and hunt and fish in a ever changing landscape of the mesolithic period in Scotland.
This is a great read for the general reader striate though to the postgraduate reeder without all the usual jargon you get with archaeology books.
