Prehistoric Cumbria is the first book to consider the development of Cumbria from the end of the last ice age until the arrival of the Romans.

It discusses what life was like in the past in Cumbria, considering aspects of daily life and death, how food was obtained, trade, ritual and belief. Using the latest archaeological information this book details for the first time what daily life was like for men and women, children and older people. This new perspective sheds new light on how we think about the familiar stone circles and axes. Cumbria was an important location and the story of how this came to be, and what happened after the Neolithic will be of interest to anyone interested in Prehistoric Britain. The book is written so that it will be accessible to both people who have an interest in history but are not specialists, and also to archaeology students and researchers.
