Neolithic and Bronze Age Scotland by P. J Ashmore( Book )

9 editions published between 1996 and 2000 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the story of Scotland from the first farmers to the beginning of the Iron Age. It traces the growth and mysterious decline of the society which left its mark on the landscape in the form of great stone circles, settlements and ceremonial enclosures. Who were these people and how did they live? What were their rituals and what did their monuments mean?" "Backed by the latest archaeological evidence and techniques, Patrick Ashmore puts these fine structures in a Scottish context in a way that has not been attempted before; he reveals the identity of their creators, people who transformed the ancient forests of Scotland into a land of moors, grassy uplands and farms." "Finely illustrated with photographs, drawings and maps - many specially prepared for the book - this is an authoritative and lively account, throwing light on a hitherto enigmatic period of Scottish prehistory."--Jacket

Dwelling among the monuments : the Neolithic village of Barnhouse, Maeshowe passage grave and surrounding monuments at Stenness, Orkney( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The inhabitants of Barnhouse lived within one of the most spectacular monumental landscapes of the British Neolithic, and this volume also describes smaller-scale excavations at the nearby passage grave of Maeshowe and at the Stone of Odin. The results of these investigations provide the basis for an interpretative account of the habitation and construction of this monumental landscape over a five-hundred-year period of Orcadian prehistory (c. 3200-2700 B.C.)."--Jacket
