Prehistory in the Peak

21,000+ Reviews has the highest-rated customer service of any bookstore in the world


Anyone who lives in Derbyshire or has walked in the Peak District will have marvelled at the rich variety of prehistoric remains: how and why did our remote ancestors choose to live in this seemingly wild and inhospitable. Arranging the text around a number of walks that today's explorer can undertake, the authors cover the whole prehistoric period, from the Mesolithic (the end of the last ice age), through the Neolithic and the Bronze Age, down to the hilltop enclosures of the Iron Age. At each period they describe the sort of life that the communities would be leading. An accessible text is enhanced by an exceptionally fine range of illustrations. Having been a Research fellow in Archaeology at Cambridge University, Dr Mark Edmonds is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Archaeology & Prehistory, University of Sheffield. He is the author of Stone Tools and Society.
