Britain's Oldest Art: The Ice Age cave art of Creswell Crags (Paperback)

£20.00
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

Britain's first Ice Age cave art was discovered at Creswell Crags in 2003 by Paul Bahn, Paul Pettitt and Sergio Ripoll. The book starts with the discovery of the art, places the Ice Age archaeology of the crags in a national context, draws on continental parallels and details the scientific verification of the art. It concludes with a chapter on the national search for other examples of Ice Age cave art by the Cave Art Survey Team, commissioned by English Heritage.





Providing a final, definitive list of the motifs, each with a photograph, line drawing and full description, while setting the art into its archaeological and geological context., the book is intended to inform specialists, students and visitors to the caves.
