Achilles, Odysseus, and other heroes of Homer’s “Iliad” and “Odyssey” fought with shields and swords of bronze. What was the world like in those mythic days, when the rival Greek cities of Troy and Mycenae battled for supremacy, and far to the west, unknown engineers raised the megaliths of Stonehenge? What do we know of even earlier times, when the settled peoples of Europe first replaced their crude stone tools with those made of refined metal, and crafted ornaments of beaten copper and gold? Archaeologists date the Bronze Age in Europe from about the fifth to the first millennium B.C. That span of time witnessed dramatic changes in civilizations from the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea, and from Scandinavia to the Aegean. The discovery of bronze, an alloy of copper and tin, was a remarkable technological development, permitting the casting of much stronger tools and weapons. Across Europe the peoples of the Bronze Age forged metal and traded its products, raised monolithic standing stones, practiced similar funerary and religious rites, and decorated their products with the same motifs and symbols. From Cretan palaces to Swiss lakeside dwellings, a common culture arose. As they explore the epic of the Bronze Age, archaeologists Jean-Pierre Mohen and Christiane Eluere take us back beyond the borders of history. CONDITION: NEW. New oversized softcover. Harry N. Abrams (2000) 160 pages. Unblemished except for slight edge and corner shelf wear to the covers, including a faint crease mark parallel to the spine, lower portion of the backside; and a more prominent crumple/crease to the front cover which is echoed through the book. It looks as if the book were dropped. It's purely superficial and cosmetic, just the shadow or echo of a bump visible on the front cover and pages if you hold the book up to the light and view it at an angle. Pages are otherwise pristine; clean, crisp, unmarked, tightly bound, unambiguously unread. Condition is entirely consistent with new stock from a bookstore environment wherein new books might show minor signs of shelfwear and/or handling, the consequence of simply being shelved and re-shelved (or in this case, perhaps dropped). Satisfaction unconditionally guaranteed. In stock, ready to ship. No disappointments, no excuses. PROMPT SHIPPING! HEAVILY PADDED, DAMAGE-FREE PACKAGING! #2071g. PLEASE SEE IMAGES BELOW FOR SAMPLE PAGES FROM INSIDE OF BOOK. PLEASE SEE PUBLISHER, PROFESSIONAL, AND READER REVIEWS BELOW. PUBLISHER REVIEW: REVIEW: Co-Author Jean-Pierre Mohen, director of the research laboratory of the French National Museum since 1992, has curated numerous exhibitions at the Grand Palais in Paris (Scythian Gold in 1975; Treasures of the Celtic Princes in 1987; The Vikings in 1992) and was the commissioner for the French Year of Archaeology in 1989-90. His published works include “The World of the Megaliths”, “La Metallurgie Prehistorique”, and “Megaliths: Stones of Memory”. From 1987 to 1992 Mohen was director of the Musee des Antiquites Nationale, St.-Germain-en-Laye, France. Co-Author Christiane Eluere, chief curator of the French National Museums, was responsible for the Bronze Age collection of the Musee des Antiquites Nationale, St.-Germain-en-Laye. Her publications include “L’Or des Celtes”, “Secrets de L’or Antique”; and “The Celts: Conquerors of Ancient Europe”. Contents/Chapter Headings of “The Bronze Age in Europe” includes: 1) Did the Bronze Age Exist? 2) The First Uses of Metal. 3) Mycenaeans in the Heart of Europe? 4) From Forces of Nature to the Birth of Mythology. 5) The High Bronze Age: A Time of Upheaval? 6) Documents. 7) Chronology. 8) Further Reading. PROFESSIONAL REVIEWS: REVIEW: This riveting work of ancient history is an illustrated tour of European culture from the third to the first millennium BC, when the development of bronze and its use in tools and weapons led to dramatic advances in civilization and technology. The Bronze Age in Europe saw major changes in civilizations. In this work, the authors take readers back beyond the borders of history to look at this period of time. REVIEW: Well-written, loaded with information, and with a rich assortment of illustrations, each Discoveries "RM" volume is a look at one facet of art, archaeology, music, history, philosophy, popular culture, science, or nature. These innovatively designed, affordably priced, compact paperbacks bring ideas to life and amplify our understanding of civilization in a new way. READER REVIEW: REVIEW: A surprisingly good introduction and overview of Bronze Age Europe and its artifacts. It is well illustrated book. The text is written at an introductory level, good for those with no prior knowledge of Bronze Age art. Many have taken courses in world history that begin with classical Greece and gloss over the accomplishments of the rest of Europe especially during the thousands of years before the time of classical Greece. If that was the case for you this book is much needed on your bookshelf. Acquaint yourself with the technical and artistic accomplishments of the Bronze Age. I always ship books Media Mail in a padded mailer. This book is shipped FOR FREE via USPS INSURED media mail (“book rate”). All domestic shipments and most international shipments will include free USPS Delivery Confirmation (you might be able to update the status of your shipment on-line at the USPS Web Site and free insurance coverage). A small percentage of international shipments may require an additional fee for tracking and/or delivery confirmation. If you are concerned about a little wear and tear to the book in transit, I would suggest a boxed shipment - it is an extra $1.00. Whether via padded mailer or box, we will give discounts for multiple purchases. International orders are welcome, but shipping costs are substantially higher. Most international orders cost an additional $12.99 to $33.99 for an insuredshipment in a heavily padded mailer, and typically includes some form of rudimentary tracking and/or delivery confirmation (though for some countries, this is only available at additional cost). There is also a discount program which can cut postage costs by 50% to 75% if you’re buying about half-a-dozen books or more (5 kilos+). Rates and available services vary a bit from country to country. You can email or message me for a shipping cost quote, but I assure you they are as reasonable as USPS rates allow, and if it turns out the rate is too high for your pocketbook, we will cancel the sale at your request. ADDITIONAL PURCHASES do receive a VERY LARGE discount, typically about $5 per book (for each additional book after the first) so as to reward you for the economies of combined shipping/insurance costs. Your purchase will ordinarily be shipped within 48 hours of payment. We package as well as anyone in the business, with lots of protective padding and containers. All of our shipments are sent via insured mail so as to comply with PayPal requirements. We do NOT recommend uninsured shipments, and expressly disclaim any responsibility for the loss of an uninsured shipment. Unfortunately the contents of parcels are easily “lost” or misdelivered by postal employees – even in the USA. That’s why all of our domestic shipments (and most international) shipments include a USPS delivery confirmation tag; or are trackable or traceable, and all shipments (international and domestic) are insured. We do offer U.S. Postal Service Priority Mail, Registered Mail, and Express Mail for both international and domestic shipments, as well United Parcel Service (UPS) and Federal Express (Fed-Ex). Please ask for a rate quotation. We will accept whatever payment method you are most comfortable with. If upon receipt of the item you are disappointed for any reason whatever, I offer a no questions asked return policy. Send it back, I will give you a complete refund of the purchase price (less our original shipping costs). Most of the items I offer come from the collection of a family friend who was active in the field of Archaeology for over forty years. However many of the items also come from purchases I make in Eastern Europe, India, and from the Levant (Eastern Mediterranean/Near East) from various institutions and dealers. Though I have always had an interest in archaeology, my own academic background was in sociology and cultural anthropology. After my retirement however, I found myself drawn to archaeology as well. Aside from my own personal collection, I have made extensive and frequent additions of my own via purchases on Ebay (of course), as well as many purchases from both dealers and institutions throughout the world - but especially in the Near East and in Eastern Europe. I spend over half of my year out of the United States, and have spent much of my life either in India or Eastern Europe. In fact much of what we generate on Yahoo, Amazon and Ebay goes to support The Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, as well as some other worthy institutions in Europe connected with Anthropology and Archaeology. I acquire some small but interesting collections overseas from time-to-time, and have as well some duplicate items within my own collection which I occasionally decide to part with. Though I have a collection of ancient coins numbering in the tens of thousands, my primary interest is in ancient jewelry. My wife also is an active participant in the "business" of antique and ancient jewelry, and is from Russia. I would be happy to provide you with a certificate/guarantee of authenticity for any item you purchase from me. There is a $2 fee for mailing under separate cover. Whenever I am overseas I have made arrangements for purchases to be shipped out via domestic mail. If I am in the field, you may have to wait for a week or two for a COA to arrive via international air mail. But you can be sure your purchase will arrive properly packaged and promptly - even if I am absent. And when I am in a remote field location with merely a notebook computer, at times I am not able to access my email for a day or two, so be patient, I will always respond to every email.
