Landscapes of Neolithic Brittany Chris Scarre. Places the Neolithic of Brittany within its broader French and European context, discussing parallels with material from other regions, including Britain; Extensively illustrated with photographs, diagrams, and maps. Book Description: This volume explores the landscape settings of megalithic chambered monuments in Wales. Set against a broader theoretical discussion on the significance of the landscape, the authors consider the role of visual landscapes in prehistory, meanings attached to the landscape, and the values and beliefs invested in it.

“Soon after the news broke about these published conclusions [regarding the evidence of a Palaeolithic human presence on Malta] and their stark contradiction of the orthodox view on Malta's prehistory, the Italian team distanced itself from its initial Palaeolithic leanings and claimed instead that the depictions in Ghar Hasan are 'out of context' -- which indeed they are if one is only. There are some 40, ancient megalithic and Neolithic sites across the British Isles and Ireland, from burial chambers, to stone circles and former dwellings of ancient societies. Ireland's most prominent Neolithic site is Newgrange an ancient passage tomb, dating back nearly 5, years, predating the Egyptian pyramids by 6 centuries.
