Newly available in paperback, this brilliantly argued and elegantly written book examines the intricate web of belief, myth and society in the Neolithic period, continuing the story begun in the bestselling and critically acclaimed book "The Mind in the Cave". Drawing on the latest research, the authors skilfully link material on human consciousness, imagery and religious concepts to propose provocative new theories about the causes of an ancient revolution in cosmology, the origins of social complexity and even the drive behind the domestication of plants and animals.

Review:

Features superb writing, lavishly illustrated descriptions . . . and a powerfully evocative stone-by-stone tour of the megalithic tombs. . . . Lewis-Williams and Pearce can be assured that their foray into the Neolithic mind will not be ignored.
