Crocodile : evolution's greatest survivor by Lynne Kelly( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The crocodilian is an ancient animal whose ancestors have roamed the eartch since the time of the dinosaurs. While continents drifted, ice ages thawed and once-prolific species became extinct, the crocodilian survived it all. However, many breeds of this seemingly indescructible species are now facing extinction because of human activity, intrusion into their habitats and retaliation for the threat they pose to humans
The memory code : the secrets of Stonehenge, Easter Island and other ancient monuments by Lynne Kelly( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In ancient, pre-literate cultures across the globe, tribal elders had encyclopedic memories. They could name all the animals and plants across a landscape, identify the stars in the sky, and recite the history of their people. Yet today, most of us struggle to memorize more than a short poem. Using traditional Aboriginal Australian song lines as a starting point, Dr. Lynne Kelly has identified the powerful memory technique used by our ancestors and indigenous people around the world. In turn, she has then discovered that this ancient memory technique is the secret purpose behind the great prehistoric monuments like Stonehenge, which have puzzled archaeologists for so long. The henges across northern Europe, the elaborate stone houses of New Mexico, huge animal shapes in Peru, the statues of Easter Island--these all serve as the most effective memory system ever invented by humans. They allowed people in non-literate cultures to memorize the vast amounts of information they needed to survive. But how? For the first time, Dr. Kelly unlocks the secret of these monuments and their purpose as "memory places" in her fascinating book. Additionally, The Memory Code also explains how we can use this ancient mnemonic technique to train our minds in the tradition of our ancestors."--Book jacket
Spiders : learning to love them by Lynne Kelly( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Yet again I was screaming in the night" is the opening sentence in this book. The author decided to deliberately overcome her fear of spiders by observing and studying them, and learning as much as she could about them. As well as being an authoritative book on spiders this book is a personal account of how the author came to love them; and how any other arachnophobe can do the same."--Provided by publisher
Knowledge and power in prehistoric societies : orality, memory, and the transmission of culture by Lynne Kelly( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, Lynne Kelly explores the role of formal knowledge systems in small-scale oral cultures in both historic and archaeological contexts. In the first part, she examines knowledge systems within historically recorded oral cultures, showing how the link between power and the control of knowledge is established. Analyzing the material mnemonic devices used by documented oral cultures, she demonstrates how early societies maintained a vast corpus of pragmatic information concerning animal behavior, plant properties, navigation, astronomy, genealogies, laws and trade agreements, among other matters. In the second part Kelly turns to the archaeological record of three sites, Chaco Canyon, Poverty Point and Stonehenge, offering new insights into the purpose of the monuments and associated decorated objects. This book demonstrates how an understanding of rational intellect, pragmatic knowledge and mnemonic technologies in prehistoric societies offers a new tool for analysis of monumental structures built by non-literate cultures
