Appropriately enough, stonetools, I'm interested in pre-history, primarily UK & Europe, but any is of interest.
My problem is not many works in this field are available e-wise.
I don't have any ebook suggestions off hand, but "God's Own Radio Service" ( My irreverent appellation for the BBC) has two excellent resources for prehistory :
" A History of the World in 100 objects"
It was originally a PODCAST
, but there is a companion BOOK
I describe it as "crack for history buffs "
. I think my IQ grew a point or two every time I listened to an episode. Superb stuff-highest recommendation. I wish there had been a 1000 objects!
I also recommend highly Melvin Bragg's "In Our Time" on BBC RAdio 4. Its an ongoing series, but they have archived stuff on pre-history, as well as on history, philosophy, science, culture, and religion. Lots of interesting stuff.
