Prehistoric Cheshire

Prehistoric Cheshire - Victoria & Paul Morgan

Landmark Publishers, 2004, 192 pages

An archaeological study of Cheshire's prehistory, written by former Megalithic Portal editors Victoria and Paul Morgan. It focusses on the long barrows and chambered tombs, henges, stone circles, round barrows, standing stones, ancient settlements and hillforts of the region. It covers the whole of the modern county as well as areas formerly within the boundaries, such as Stockport and the Wirral.

As well as covering most of the well known and obscure sites, it also instils a better understanding of how and why certain industries thrived, particularly mining and salt production. Hundreds of beautifully reproduced black & white photos and drawings make this a quality production to treasure.

Highly Recommended in reviews by Aubrey Burl, Kevin Kilburn and others.

Guidestones to the Great Langdale Axe Factories

Guidestones to the Great Langdale Axe Factories: Ancient Ways to Stone Axe Working Sites in the English Lake District - Gabriel M Blamires

Paperback 144 pages (June 2005)

The use of standing stones and other rocks to mark prehistoric routes is not unknown, but it is seldom studied. Gabriel Blamire's scholarly and well-researched study of possible routes to the Langdale axe factories is a model for others to follow. Meticulously documented, mapped and photographed with full grid references, this book will enable other field researchers and fell walkers to go out into Langdale and look for themselves. This book has nothing to with leylines, but everything to do with how Neolithic people may have moved around, marked their routes and posted guides. It will also appeal to those readers intrigued by British rock art.

Use Wear Analysis and Obsidian: Theory, Experiments and Results (Sheffield Archaeological Monographs)

Use Wear Analysis and Obsidian: Theory, Experiments and Results - Linda M Hurcombe

Sheffield Archaeological Monographs, Hardcover, 248 pages, 1992, ISBN 0906090423

This volume investigates a technique for the functional analysis of obsidian tools and a small archaeological case study: the lunates from the Bronze Age Sardinian site of Ortu Comidu is examined using the technique and approach. It reviews the current state of flint use wear studies and applies the theories generated there to obsidian. The experimental programme shows the potential success of the technique, which can allow the use action and use material to be interpreted, and demonstrates the limitations. Residues play an important role as they are more easily seen on obsidian than flint. The discussion includes an assessment of wear formation theories and the role of functional information within archaeology. The technique and approach is brought to bear on a small archaeologucal case study: the lunates from the Bronze Age Sardinian site of Ortu Comidu.
