"Mesolithic Europe is an impressive, updated, and concise synthesis of the early Post-Glacial European hunter-gatherer record that brings together the research of 14 authors from Europe and the United States. Against all odds, the editors have dealt with the major constraint of presenting a pan-European synthesis in a single, handy volume, with a reasonable amount of detail, adequately documented and illustrated. This book strikes a balance between the local and the global and facts and interpretation, allowing the reader to use it both as reference to the regional records presented and also as a valuable source of information about emerging patterns and ideas regarding the period." --Journal of Field Archaeology
"Mesolithic Europe is encyclopedic in scopel it is not a textbook, nor is it a book one reads for general interest, but rather a primary source for academic research." -Laurie Milne, Canadian Journal of Archaeology
This book focuses on the archaeology of the hunter-gatherer societies that inhabited Europe in the millennia between the Last Ice Age and the spread of agriculture, between 10,000 and 5,000 years ago. Traditionally viewed as a period of cultural stagnation, new data now demonstrate that this was a period of radical change and innovation.
