The Oxford introduction to Proto Indo European and the Proto Indo European world by J. P Mallory( )

30 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our linguistic ancestors had used the wheel, were settled arable farmers, kept sheep and cattle, brewed beer, got married, made weapons, and had at least 27 verbs for the expression of strife. The subjects to which the authors devote chapters include fauna, flora, family and kinship, clothing and textiles, food and drink, space and time, emotions, mythology, religion, and the continuing quest to discover the Proto-Indo-European homeland."

The Tarim mummies : ancient China and the mystery of the earliest peoples from the West, with 190 illustrations, 13 in color by J. P Mallory( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"J. P. Mallory and Victor Mair describe the discovery of the enigmatic mummies, and reveal the latest attempts of Chinese and Western scientists to explain their origin and ethnic identity. The book examines the clues left by physical remains; their economy, technology and textiles (some of the mummies even wore tartans); and the later traces of the languages of the Tarim region. The trail ultimately leads to two major contenders: the Indo-Iranians, the masters of the Eurasian steppes who poured south into the ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia, India and China, and the Tocharians, the most elusive of the major branches of Indo-Europeans."--Jacket
Encyclopedia of Indo-European culture by J. P Mallory( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 564 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture provides full, inclusive coverage of the major Indo-European language stocks and their origins. The Encyclopedia also includes numerous entries on archaeological cultures having some relationship to the origin and dispersal of Indo-European groups-as well as entries on some of the major issues in Indo- European cultural studies. There are two kinds of entries in the Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture: a) those that are devoted to archaeology, culture, or the various Indo-European languages; and b) those that are devoted to the reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European words. With more than 700 entries, written by specialists from around the world, the Encyclopedia of Indo-European Culture has become an essential reference text in this field
The origins of the Irish by J. P Mallory( Book )

13 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in English and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

About eighty million people today can trace their descent back to the occupants of Ireland. But where did the occupants of the island themselves come from and what do we even mean by "Irish" in the first place? This is the first major attempt to deal with the core issues of how the Irish came into being. The author emphasizes that the Irish did not have a single origin, but are a product of multiple influences that can only be tracked by employing the disciplines of archaeology, genetics, geology, linguistics, and mythology. Beginning with the collision that fused the two halves of Ireland together, the book traces Ireland's long journey through space and time to become an island. The origins of its first farmers and their monumental impact on the island is followed by an exploration of how metallurgists in copper, bronze, and iron brought Ireland into increasingly wider orbits of European culture. Assessments of traditional explanations of Irish origins are combined with the very latest genetic research into the biological origins of the Irish. -- Publisher description
In search of the Irish dreamtime : archaeology & early Irish literature by J. P Mallory( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tracing their roots back to nearly 3000 BC, the medieval Irish claimed an ancestry older than that of any other people in Europe. In their manuscripts they recorded the shaping of their island, the reigns of their kings and the deeds of their heroes. They clung to this account of their past in the face of foreign invasion and colonization, and drew upon it whenever they felt the need to emphasize their ancient heroic pedigree. Even when more skeptical attitudes challenged the veracity of their earliest traditional history, the epic tales were still seen as relics of a prehistoric society, a window on the Iron Age, preserving the earliest vernacular literature in Europe in their accounts of King Conchobar, Queen Medb and Ireland's greatest warrior, Cú Chulainn. In Search of the Irish Dreamtime explores the oldest Irish mythological tradition - Ireland's "Dreamtime" - from the perspective of archaeology. Was this narrative built from largely native accounts of Ireland's prehistoric past, transmitted orally over many generations, or was it primarily the product of an educated medieval class who blended the cultural landscape of their own times with descriptions from the Bible and Latin literature to create an imagined ancient Irish world? Delving into the linguistic evidence of the early tales and native histories, which relate the natural environment, built environment (focusing particularly on forts and provincial capitals) and economy of ancient Ireland, Mallory expertly tests the medieval writings against the archaeology on the ground. He compares the literary depictions of ancient material culture - clothing, weaponry, modes of transport - and traditions of burial with the archaeological record of the Bronze Age through to the Middle Ages, reaching a provocative new understanding of the early history of Ireland. -- from dust jacket
