Archaeology of Natural Placesis the first book to examine the special importance that unaltered features of the landscape held for prehistoric peoples. This volume explores why natural places such as caves, mountains, springs and rivers assumed a sacred character in European prehistory, and how the evidence for this can be analyzed in the field. Extending the range of landscape studies, this book makes the results of modern research accessible to a wider audience, including students and academics, field archaeologists, and those working in heritage management.
