Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

This book explores the development and nature of farming in Britain throughout the prehistoric period. Starting with the transition from the hunter-gatherer in the late neolithic/early neolithic, expert author Peter Reynolds traces the sequence of farming from the initial struggle to dominate the landscape to the full 'agroscope' of the late iron age. He presents both plantstock and livestock, as based upon the evidence from archaeological excavations with discussion of how these elements interact with one another and the implications they have for our understanding of prehistoric farming.

Much of the evidence for prehistoric agriculture, especially for the late iron age, has been subjected to experimental research at the Butser Ancient Farm Research Project in Hampshire. Many of the latest results of that research have been incorporated into the text enhancing theory with practical probability.

About the Author:

Peter J. Reynolds graduated in classics from Trinity College, Dublin, and has been involved in rescue and salvage excavation in the City of Worcester and the surrounding area. From 1969-72 he was responsible for setting up a research project in iron age studies at the Avoncroft Museum of Buildings in Bromsgrove. In 1972 he was invited to become the Director of the Butser Ancient Farm Research Project, a post he has held to the present. He gained a PhD from Leicester University in 1978 for his work on the underground storage of grain. He has traveled widely in Europe, Africa and America, studying comparative ethnography as well as lecturing on experimental archaeology as a major research tool for the future. He is the author of several books and numerous specialist papers on prehistoric agriculture.
