12 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and German and held by 1,538 libraries worldwide
When a melting Swiss glacier recently revealed the body of a hunter millenia old, the world sat up and took notice. Here, in his well-preserved arrows, tools, and leather garments (not to mention his own remains) was a rare glimpse of life in prehistoric Europe, and it captured the public imagination. Elsewhere more obvious remnants of the pre-classical past have long been objects of fascination: the megaliths of northwestern Europe, the palaces of Crete, the mysterious cave paintings of France. Now archeologist Barry Cunliffe and a team of distinguished experts shed light on this astonishing, long-silent world in a comprehensive and lavishly illustrated account. Ranging from the earliest settlements through the emergence of Minoan civilization to the barbarian world at the end of the Roman Empire, The Oxford Illustrated Prehistory of Europe provides a fascinating look at how successive cultures adapted to the landscape of Europe. In synthesizing the diverse findings of archeology, the authors capture the sweeping movements of peoples, the spread of agriculture, the growth of metal working, and the rise and fall of cultures. They provide intriguing insight on the Minoan and the Mycenean past underlying classical Greek history, and on the disasters that destroyed Minoan civilization. They explore the increasingly sophisticated societies of northern Europe, revealing surprisingly far-reaching trade between different areas. The peoples of Bronze Age Denmark, for instance, sent amber to Germany in return for scarce metal, while new technologies spread widely across the continent. The book continues through the end of the Roman Empire, exploring the barbarian world beyond Rome's northern frontier. For centuries, we knew little of the European civilizations that preceded classical Greece or arose outside of the Roman Empire, beyond ancient myths and the writings of Roman observers. Now the most recent discoveries of archeology have been synthesized into one exciting volume. Featuring hundreds of stunning photographs (many in full color), this book provides the most complete account available of the prehistory of European civilization.

Europe between the oceans : themes and variations, 9000 BC - AD 1000 by Barry W Cunliffe ( Book )
7 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 922 libraries worldwide
By the fifteenth century Europe was a driving world force, but the origins of its success have until now remained obscured in prehistory. In this book, distinguished archaeologist Barry Cunliffe views Europe not in terms of states and shifting political land boundaries but as a geographical niche particularly favored in facing many seas. These seas, and Europe's great transpeninsular rivers, ensured a rich diversity of natural resources while also encouraging the dynamic interaction of peoples across networks of communication and exchange. The development of these early Europeans is rooted in complex interplays, shifting balances, and geographic and demographic fluidity.
Facing the ocean : the Atlantic and its peoples, 8000 BC-AD 1500 by Barry W Cunliffe ( Book )
11 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 780 libraries worldwide
"It is not often that a new idea enters the world of ancient and medieval history, but in Facing the Ocean Barry Cunliffe presents a fresh approach that will change our view of the European past. After many years of research and fieldwork, he has come to believe that the peoples of Iceland, Scotland, Ireland, Brittany, Spain, Portugal, and Gibraltar all share an identity shaped by thousands of years of living along the Atlantic shore." "Facing the Ocean shows that Celts, Bretons, and Galicians had a closer kinship with seafaring neighbours than with their English, French, and Spanish countrymen. Indeed the very act of living on the edge of the world created a collective consciousness that was, and is still today, specifically 'Atlantic' - an identity that has produced cultures of great inventiveness and works of art of beauty and orginality." "Illustrations bring the evidence to life - from photographs of the hard rocks and promontories of the Atlantic coast to stunning art that retells enthralling legends of lost continents and ocean monsters."--BOOK JACKET.

Druids : a very short introduction by Barry W Cunliffe ( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 289 libraries worldwide
Who were the Druids? What do we know about them? Do they still exist today? The Druids first came into focus in Western Europe - Gaul, Britain, and Ireland - in the second century BC. They are a popular subject; they have been known and discussed for over 2,000 years and few figures flit so elusively through history. They are enigmatic and puzzling, partly because of the lack of knowledge about them has resulted in a wide spectrum of interpretations. Barry Cunliffe takes the reader through the evidence relating to the Druids, trying to decide what can be said and what can't be said about them.
