Product description

A richly illustrated guide to the dolmen culture of Prehistoric Sicily. Scattered around the world in woods and on mountains dolmens have posed a mystery for hundreds of years. The interpretations of these mysteries have been extremely imaginative over the centuries. But in Sicily it has only been in recent years that the presence of numerous megaliths has been revealed. This manual provides a comprehensive guide to the dolmens of Sicily and the artefacts as well as historical and cultural associations of these prehistoric sites. With 26 black and white illustrations

The Prehistory of Sicily, especially during the Neolithic Age, is an important contribution to the study of the development of social stratification of Europe. The study of the past gives us opportunities to analyse these processes, and to see other ways of being, rather than a fixed human condition. Ancient Stones, make an important point in time contribution to research into, giving us the awareness of the great journeys that men faced at all times. Mike R.
