    Review quote
    "Extensive and current bibliographies and illustrations accompany the highly stimulating discussions. [This is] Clearly a volume for colleges and universities with programs in archaeology and anthropology." (CHOICE, December 2009) "This edited volume provides a welcome break from the traditional chronological approach to European prehistory. Important disciplinary themes are addressed here in innovative ways by a group of scholars with active field projects as well as impressive publication records." Bettina Arnold, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee "An impressive compilation of papers which successfully combines novel and theoretical approaches with detailed regional studies. Jones has assembled a galaxy of leading scholars to produce an authoritative overview of key themes and subjects within European prehistory, from the Iron Gates Mesolithic to Iron Age Scandinavia." Chris Scarre, University of Durham "Massive amounts of new information exist from all periods of prehistoric Europe and older frameworks of interpretation are increasingly inadequate to the task of making sense of these. Prehistoric Europe brings together a wide range of approaches which show exciting possibilities for novel ways of understanding the past. It is a book to be debated and argued with - I am sure new insights will result." Chris Gosden, University of Oxford
