Product Overview

The Thames Valley is a rich source of evidence for understanding past climate and environmental change, the effects on plant and animal populations and the challenges and opportunities these presented for early humans. Part 1 of this volume covers the Pleistocene, the epoch of the Ice Ages, in an integrated review of the geological, palaeontological and archaeological data for the last half million years and more. Part 2 takes up the story from the beginning of the Holocene, the warm period in which we are still living, which began around 11,500 years ago. The authors review the evidence for early hunter-gatherer populations in the Mesolithic, the gradually increasing impact of humans in the region in the Neolithic and early Bronze Age and their rich social lives and belief systems. Much of the evidence has been recovered during extensive gravel quarrying and the volume has been produced with resources from the Aggregates Levy Sustainability Fund.
