Archaeological study of pre-historic Europe. Divided into four sections: The Antiquity of Man; The Retreat of the Ice; The Opening-Up of Europe; On the Fringe of the Great Empires.

'The story of humanity in the northern half of Europe from life during and before the ice ages, hunting as ice retreated, arrival of farming colonists, and the subsequent history of these farmers. The first complete story, in the light of startling discoveries, of the slow spread of a succession of "barbarian" tribes north of the Alps, showing prehistory turning into history in the heartland of Europe.'
