Marvellous, mysterious, mundane – how the past’s silent witnesses speak to us

Prehistory is defined as ‘before writing’. It’s before documentary sources began being created to give an arguably realistic impression of what life was like, or the significant tales (imagined and actual) were recorded and retold for posterity. The word ‘prehistoric’ may evoke impressions of dinosaurs stomping around the land, but in this specific context, it relates to people’s interaction with the landscape, and the development of tools for hunting, and changing the environment for desired living conditions.
