Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
The reader's choices determine whether three friends will survive after being mysteriously transported back in time to the Neolithic Era, when humans were first learning to farm and harvest and to domesticate animals.
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.

New Stone Age sites of England, Scotland and Wales

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.
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.
A British scholar challenges the conventional view of the Stone Age as minimally civilized, pointing out the many advances of its peoples, from their maps of the constellations to their innovations in boat building.

The history of this region and its people has been developed chiefly through the genius of French arch¾ologists, beginning with Boucher de Perthes. The more recent discoveries, which have come in rapid and almost bewildering succession since the foundation of the Institut de PalŽontologie humaine, have been treated in a number of works recently published by some of the experienced arch¾ologists of England, France, and Germany. I refer especially to the Prehistoric Times of Lord Avebury, to theAncient Hunters of Professor Sollas, to Der Mensch der Vorzeit of Professor Obermaier, and to Die diluviale Vorzeit Deutschlands of Doctor R. R. Schmidt. Thus, on receiving the invitation from President Wheeler to lecture upon this subject before the University of California, I hesitated from the feeling that it would be difficult to say anything which had not been already as well or better said. On further reflection, however, I accepted the invitation with the purpose of attempting to give this great subject a more strictly historical or chronological treatment than it had previously received within the limits of a popular work in our own language, also to connect the environment, the animal and human life, and the art. This element of the time in which the various events occurred can only be drawn from a great variety of sources, from the simultaneous consideration of the geography, climate, plants and animals, the mental and bodily development of the various races, and the industries and arts which reflect the relations between the mind and the environment. In more technical terms, I have undertaken in these lectures to make a synthesis of the results of geology, pal¾ontology, anthropology, and arch¾ology, a correlation of environmental and of human events in the European Ice Age. Such a synthesis was begun many years ago in the preparation of my Age of Mammals, but could not be completed until I had gone over the territory myself. The attempt to place this long chapter of prehistory on a historical basis has many dangers, of which I am fully aware. After weighing the evidence presented by the eminent authorities in these various branches of science, I have presented my conclusions in very definite and positive form rather than in vague or general terms, believing that a positive statement has at least the merit of being positively supported or rebutted by fresh evidence. For example, I have placed the famous Piltdown man, Eoanthropus, in a comparatively recent stage of geologic time, an entirely opposite conclusion to that reached by Doctor A. Smith Woodward, who has taken a leading part in the discovery of this famous race and has concurred with other British geologists in placing it in early Pleistocene times. The difference between early and late Pleistocene times is not a matter of thousands but of hundreds of thousands of years; if so advanced a stage as the Piltdown man should definitely occur in the early Pleistocene, we may well expect to discover man in the Pliocene; on the contrary, in my opinion even in late Pliocene times man had only reached a stage similar to the Pithecanthropus, or prehuman Trinil race of Java; in other words, according to my view, man as such chiefly evolved during the half million years of the Pleistocene Epoch and not during the Pliocene.
