Authoritative and wide-ranging Images of the Ice Age provides readers with a stimulating view of the life and art of our Ice Age ancestors. Making use of the most advanced analytical techniques in archaeology and photography, Paul Bahn describes the varied background to the sites, their enigmas and mysteries. Taking a critical view of many of the outmoded theories of the past, and widening the field of discussion to include contemporary prehistoric art outside Europe, he explores the possible meanings and functions of the paintings and objects, both sacred and secular.
The text is illustrated with superb full-color photographs by the late Jean Vertut, whose innovative work in the caves of France and Spain has long been known, but only a fraction of which has ever been seen.
