Hunting In Britain from the Ice Age to the Present

Be the first to review this product

Hunting in Britain: from the Ice Age to the Present is a book for archaeologists, historians and indeed anyone with an interest in horses, riding, dogs, hunting of any kind, including shooting and even human evolution. The oldest of human endeavours, hunting has been a key feature of human existence and evolution ever since our ancestors emerged from the forests of Africa. One of the key threads of this book is an exploration of our relationship with hunting, how it is perceived by modern society, the effects of the 2004 hunting ban and even the recent rise in interest about where our food comes from and where hunting might fit into these new debates in the future. Exploring sites such as Creswell Crags, Chatsworth House, Stafford Castle, Cheddar Gorge and the New Forest, Hunting in Britain examines the role of hunting through time and considers how it shaped the landscape as we know it. Lewis considers hunting techniques, including the use of animals and the evolution of weaponry for hunting, as well as hunting as a mark of status, examining the symbolism of hunting from Roman times to the present.
