Sticks, Stones, and Broken Bones: Neolithic Violence in a European Perspective presents an up-to-date overview of the evidence for violent injuries on human skeletons of the Neolithic period in Europe, ranging from 6700 to 2000 BC. Unlike other lines of evidence - weapons, fortifications, and imagery - the human skeleton preserves the actual marks of past violent encounters.

The papers in this volume are written by the experts undertaking the archaeological analysis, and present evidence from eleven European countries which provide, for the first time, the basis for a comparative approach between different regions and periods. Difficulties and ambiguities in interpreting the evidence are also discussed, although many of the cases are clearly the outcome of conflict. Injuries often show healing, but others can be seen as the cause of death. In many parts of Europe, women and children appear to have been the victims of violence as often as adult men.

The volume not only presents an excellent starting point for a new consideration of the prevalence and significance of violence in Neolithic Europe, but provides an invaluable baseline for comparisons with both earlier and later periods.

About the Author:


Dr. Rick Schulting is an archaeologist with strong interests in bioarchaeology as a rich source of information about past peoples. His main area of research is the Mesolithic and Neolithic of western Europe. Another interest is documenting the skeletal evidence for interpersonal violence and placing this within a population perspective in order to better understand its impact on early societies.
Dr Linda Fibiger is an osteoarchaeologist/physical anthropologist whose main interests include interpersonal violence and conflict in prehistoric Europe, human remains from caves, Irish Early Christian Burials, and standards and practice in osteoarchaeology. She has published widely on commercial and research projects in Britain and Ireland, and has recently been involved in an AHRC-funded research project at the University of Cardiff, investigating changing lifeways in the earliest agricultural societies of central Europe.
