Prehistoric sites( Visual )

3 editions published between 1982 and 2014 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prehistoric sites are often difficult to understand; this program looks at a wide variety - from Stonehenge, in Wiltshire, England, to less well-known monuments high on the moorlands of western Britain - and helps to explain them. It also sets out to tell part of the story of the ancient peoples who built them. We can see the evidence - tools, stone buildings, earthworks, burial chambers, stone circles and long lines of upright stones - but how are we to interpret it? Many clues are pointed out to help work out what the monuments might have been used for. Reconstruction paintings of prehistoric times bring to life the remains of ancient communities: the makers of these structures were farmers, and we assume that the henges had ritual and religious significance in their lives. The construction of the later hillforts of the Iron Age, including Maiden Castle, is also looked at. An excavation of a long barrow is used to show how much of the evidence that we do have has been recovered by archaeological investigation. We also see a school party using a detailed map as they set out to explore a monument. The program ends by making clear just how many such ancient remains there are. It is a useful general guide to any study of prehistory
Grimes Graves( Visual )

2 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The strange landscape of pits and mounds known as Grimes Graves near Thetford in Norfolk, England, is the site of one of Britain's earliest industries, flint mining, and its associated craft of flint knapping. This industry was carried on in the area within living memory - the craft survived long enough to be filmed in the 1940s and historic footage of this is included. Next, the mines are investigated and examined for evidence of how neolithic miners extracted the flint - the pits are the filled-in entrances to mine shafts. A school party is shown beginning their investigation of the mines. A professional flint knapper, John Lord, takes the viewer on a tour of the mines, including one of the deepest that is not open to the public. The flint is found underground embedded in the chalk, and the best is at the bottom of the pit, 60 feet down. Here tunnels lead off the central chamber into a maze of galleries beyond. John Lord demonstrates how the neolithic miners must have worked, using antler picks, by scraping away the chalk to loosen the large flint boulders. In the last part of the program he demonstrates the skills needed to make an axe head by using a pebble to split the flintstone and shape it. Finally the cutting edge of the axe head is put on, using an antler to flake off smaller pieces
Early Cultures Collection( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Film - history's newest art form - reaches back to some of the earliest images ever created by human beings. The two films which frame this first section of the Roland Collection's history of art set the keynote of the collection: art on film, and film as art. For the particular effects achieved in Tassili N'Ajjer, the director, JD Lajoux, booked what was then the only camera of its kind in Europe (being used at the time in the filming of the feature The Longest Day), and traveled on camel-backto the Sahara, with all equipment, including that necessary for 'bouncing' natural daylight in the absence of power supply. The Origins of Art in France presents near-hallucinatory sequences of artefacts and figures, alternated with images of the landscape, flora and fauna and rough-hewn architecture that were the backdrop to Gallic agrarian society, and to Druidic religion. While the direction of these and other films in the Roland Collection is arresting and dramatic, it illuminates, rather than competes with, the art shown - neolithic rock paintings of animals, carved stone effigies, decorative artefacts, coins, cromlechs. These images are the antecedents of all the art of succeeding centuries. Bound up with lost social beliefs and customs, they yet retain in themselves aesthetic force and eloquence
Working on the Evidence: Maiden Castle by English Heritage( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A group of young people visit the hillfort of Maiden Castle in Dorset, England, and think themselves back in time. They realize that archaeology is all about building up a picture of what life was like in the past. The archaeologist at work explains the techniques of modern archaeology and what his team is actually doing at Maiden Castle. Reconstruction paintings based on real evidence help to show life in the Iron Age, as does a visit to an experimental farm which uses the farming 'technology' employed by people over two thousand years ago. The children work on the evidence on site and in the local museum in Dorchester. Through a series of 'dissolves' they are transformed into the Iron Age people who defended the fort and the Roman soldiers who stormed it, while archive film shows Sir Mortimer Wheeler giving a vivid analysis of the battle of AD 43, based on what he learned from his excavations
