"Lower and Middle Palaeolithic Periods in Britain" (Archaeology of Britain) by Derek A. Roe. Hardcover. LIKE NEW inside, very light wear to cover dust jacket. Many detailed line drawings make this an invaluable reference book! Books on this period that focus on Great Britain are rare.
This book deals with the earliest period of human settlement in Britain, proposing a series of archaeological stages for the Lower and Middle Palaeolithic periods. An introduction on the problems and methods of studying the Palaeolithic and Pleistocene periods leads into the technical argument, a sequence of development derived from evidence of stone artifacts and other signs of human activity at stratified sites in south-east England. Materials from all occupied parts of Britain are related to this basic sequence and, stressing that Britain lay on the edge of the Palaeolithic world, the author also brings in essential evidence from Europe and farther afield. The final chapter suggests the probable way of life of human groups in this period. Originally published in 1981.
