Description : This volume fills a significant gap in prehistoric studies. It combines a series of regional overviews on such subjects as soils, aerial survey and human remains, with contributions on specific sites, artefacts and the natural environment. As such it is intended both as a summary of recent work and a reminder of the richness and diversity of the record available for study in the South East. Since so much of the material that it covers is novel and unexpected, it poses a challenge to accounts of British prehistory based on regions with a longer history of large scale survey and excavation.

Description : The climax of the Stone Age in Britain, the Neolithic period (4700-2000BC), was a period of startling achievement. The British Isles are rich in Neolithic sites, which give us evidence of a complex and surprisingly developed archaic society. The author surveys 1100 secular and ceremonial sites in Britain, selecting some for detailed explanation; from these a sense of the diversity and dynamism of the living Neolithic communities emerges. He presents a comprehensive, profusely illustrated and up-to-date view of the Neolithic, organised by county. Archaeologists and prehistorians will find this book of interest and it should prove indispensable to students of archaeology as a source of information about the British Neolithic.
Description : A fashion-forward guide to living well with crystals from the jewelry editor of British Vogue—including guidance and advice from designers, jewelers, and celebrity crystal fans. The New Stone Age guides you through fifteen different types of stones, categorized by color, and teaches you how to stylishly incorporate them into your wardrobe, home, and beyond. Assigning each crystal to a particular ailment of the modern age, whether it’s self-doubt, travel anxiety, or restlessness, Carol Woolton explains how a simple crystal worn around your neck, tossed in your purse, or sitting next to your computer can help inspire you to make positive changes in your life. Woolton traces the history of crystals, showing how the same quartz that was used as a form of protection in the handles of Egyptian daggers can also be hung near a bedside to help with burnout. Filled with insights, facts, and real-life stories from people who attribute dramatic personal improvements to their crystals, The New Stone Age is a fun and informative idea book for crystal lovers everywhere.
