Frameworks for Dating Fossil Man
Yesterday I was searching the site looking for books about dating and finding love (don’t even ask), and came across this gem – Frameworks For Dating Fossil Man by Kenneth P.Oakley from 1966. I am not sure when the word ‘dating’ came into modern usage but this book’s title could be used on a modern feminist manual. I can see a very forthright woman in slacks holding hands with a crouched Neanderthal man carrying a huge mammoth bone.
Sadly, this book isn’t about finding a nice young caveman. It meets “the needs of archeologists wishing to learn the stratigraphical frameworks now applied to Quaternary deposits, and second to meet the needs of geologists requiring to know the terminology of Paleolithic and Mesolithic cultures.”
