Sir John Grahame Douglas Clark (1907-95) was a British archaeologist and prehistorian who worked extensively on the Mesolithic period. In this book, which was first published in 1936, Clark presents a study of 'the cultural development, during the earlier half of the post-glacial time, of the food-gathering peoples of the western end of the plain of Northern Europe'. Numerous illustrative figures are also included, together with lists of objects and archaeological sites. The subject matter of the text formed the basis for a course of lectures
Space, time, and man : a prehistorian's view by Grahame Clark( Book )

19 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Italian and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Grahame Clark, a distinguished prehistorian, describes how man has extended his understanding of time and space far beyond that of his primate forebears through technology, social organization and, above all, his capacity for abstract thought. Prehistorians have shown that even Palaeolithic people had long outstripped their forebears in comprehending time and space; and social anthropologists have documented preindustrial societies in which people were fully aware of these dimensions but were severely restricted by their social and cultural worlds. Evidence for more expanded horizons first appeared with those civilizations which controlled extensive territories and recorded their history to some extent in writing. The transition to modern times was marked above all with the advance of geographical discovery culminating in the circumnavigation of the world and by the growth of an ampler and more critical view of human history. Today people are searching for explanations of what we know in terms of natural science. This involves looking beyond our world to outer space and seeking to understand our place in the cosmos
