THE PREHISTORIC AGE
Bill Putnam

£5.95

The earliest man-made objects so far found in Dorset are stone axes from about 15,000 years ago, the most visible from our prehistoric past are the great Iron Age hillforts which so enrich the Dorset landscape – like Maiden Castle and Badbury Rings. From 15,000 year old stone picks for grubbing up roots on Portland, to an extraordinary seven mile long avenue known as the Dorset Cursus; from great Bronze Age ceremonial tribal centres evoking a 'Golden Age' to the remains of ancient fields and early settlements, Dorset's long and often enigmatic prehistory is often surprising, always remarkable, and consistently more fascinating than any other period in its past.
