9780752449210: Prehistoric Belief: Shamans, Trance and the Afterllife

A unique and accessible analysis of the belief systems of the prehistoric people of Europe Both extensively researched and fast-paced, this groundbreaking book tackles all the big subjects in archaeology: the spread of humans from Africa, the rise of social groups, the adoption of agriculture, the construction of monuments, the emergence of metal, and the fall of the Celtic tribes. In showing that belief was central to these epic changes, as well as influencing the most mundane, everyday task, a new understanding of our prehistoric past emerges. Evocative vignettes take readers back in time to experience for themselves the sights, smells, and sounds of the past. It is only with the advent of modern science that we can begin to unravel the lives of those who lived thousands of years ago, people who were adept at entering trance and found the "other world" there to be as real as their own. This is a new way to approach prehistory, putting people and the beliefs that they held center stage. For without understanding people's beliefs, we will never comprehend their world.

Descrizione libro The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Unlike modern people, those in prehistory were adept at entering trance; what we now call shamanism. This gave access to alternative realms where people met and befriended entities that they thought of as spirits. To the people of the past, the otherworld of trance, and the spirits that resided there, were as real to them as anything else they encountered. Until recently, this otherworldly realm was closed to archaeology; there was no way to reconstruct ancient thought. This changed with the advent of modernneurology. For the first time we can now enter the minds of those who lived thousands of years ago and begin to unravel their lives: the world as they would have believed it to be. In this bold and groundbreaking book, Dr Williams tackles all the big subjects in archaeology: the spread of humans from Africa, the rise of social groups, the adoption of agriculture, the construction of monuments, the emergence of metal, and the fall of the Celtic tribes. Showing that belief was central to these epic changes, as well as influencing the most mundane, everyday task, a new understanding of our prehistoric past emerges. Whilst being extensively researched, a fast-paced and engaging narrative makes this a page-turning read. Evocative vignettes supplement the text and take readers back in time to experience for themselves the sights, smells, and sounds of the past. This is a new way to approach prehistory, putting people and the beliefs that they held centre stage. For without understanding people s beliefs, we will never comprehend their world.

Descrizione libro The History Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2010. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Starting with the dawn of what we would recognise as modern human thought, this book journeys through 35,000 years of our human past. It shows how our earliest ancestors learnt to enter trance states and the revolutionary effect this had on the way they interacted with their world. Moreover, by marrying the very latest research with vivid first-person reconstructions, the book will actually take readers back in time. In its pages we join Stone Age hunting parties, steal food from desperate, starving cannibals, sit eye-to-eye with a mouldy Bronze Age mummy and join the Celts for a feast where you truly are what you eat. The story of our past has never been told this way before and has never been brought to life with such vividness. This is the past as our ancestors would have known it.
