Books about Prehistoric England
England's ancient past is full of mystery. When I went to school, little was known about prehistoric peoples. The builders of Stonehenge were as much a mystery as the monument they created so long ago. Why is that? Mainly because they did not write down their thoughts - which is something the ancient Egyptians did at length.
So all that's left to us are their monuments, hill forts and graves to find out what lives they lived, what they believed in and how they died.
Fortunately, archaeology has come a long way since I went to school. A great number of prehistoric monuments have been studied and documented in detail.
And even though the meaning of Stonehenge may still elude us, there are several interesting or amusing titles in the shops that try their hand at an interpretation.
For my online bookshop I have selected books, DVDs, photos and small gifts about prehistoric England that I either own myself, or that are on my wish list.
