The Oxford illustrated prehistory of Europe by Barry W Cunliffe( Book )
19 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and Spanish and held by 1,574 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 )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 1,070 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 )
22 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 844 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."--Jacket

The Oxford handbook of archaeology ( Book )
17 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 495 libraries worldwide
Archaeology--the study of human society everywhere in the world, from distant human origins to the present day--is a vast subject as well as one of great popular interest. As an academic discipline, it has its own history of development, and has a distinct ethical code. The Oxford Handbook of Archaeology brings together over forty expert authors to explain what archaeology is really about. This comprehensive volume will give the reader a sense of the history of archaeology and its main theoretical debates. It also explains the means by which archaeologists find, excavate, and date archaeological material, the use of new computer-based technologies for mapping and analyzing find, and the techniques used to make sense of these artefacts. Further chapters explore specific periods and places, and in conclusion there is a discussion of some broader ethical and political issues. The Handbook is designed to open up the world of archaeology to non-specialists and to provide an essential starting point for those who want to pursue particular topics in more depth. Above all, it will convey a sense of the excitement generated by archaeological work, stemming from the fact that in order to live a full life in the present it is necessary to have a rich and full understanding of the past
Druids : a very short introduction by Barry W Cunliffe( Book )
8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and Dutch and held by 473 libraries worldwide
In this Very Short Introduction, one of the leading authorities on British archaeology, Barry Cunliffe, takes the reader on a fast-paced look at the ever-fascinating story of the Druids, as seen in the context of the times and places in which they practiced. Sifting through the evidence, Cunliffe offers an expert's best guess as to what can be said and what can't be said about the Druids, discussing the origins of the Druids and the evidence for their beliefs and practices, why the nature of the druid caste changed quite dramatically over time, and how successive generations have seen them in very different ways.-book jacket
Britain begins by Barry W Cunliffe( Book )
13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 430 libraries worldwide
Britain Begins is nothing less than the story of the origins of the British and the Irish peoples, from around 10,000 BC to the eve of the Norman Conquest. Using the most up to date archaeological evidence together with new work on DNA and other scientific techniques which help us to trace the origins and movements of these early settlers, Barry Cunliffe offers a rich narrative account of the first islanders - who they were, where they came from, and how they interacted one with another. Underlying this narrative throughout is the story of the sea, which allowed the islanders and their continental neighbours to be in constant contact. The story told by the archaeological evidence, in later periods augmented by historical texts, satisfies our need to know who we are and where we come from. But before the development of the discipline of archaeology, people used what scraps there were, gleaned from Biblical and classical texts, to create a largely mythological origin for the British. Britain Begins also explores the development of these early myths, which show our ancestors attempting to understand their origins. And, as Cunliffe shows, today's archaeologists are driven by the same desire to understand the past - the only real difference is that we have vastly more evidence to work with
