The Lost Civilizations of the Stone Age
by Richard Rudgley
The Free Press, N.Y., 1999, 310 pages
Rudgley is an English anthropologist who studied at Oxford. The premise
of his book is that so-called prehistoric man was capable of a lot more
accomplishments and culture than orthodox science gives them credit for.
It is not "a lost continent" book like Graham Hancock's Fingerprints of
the Gods or an ancient astronaut book like those of Erich Von Daniken,
but like those authors, it does attempt to revise our concept of
prehistoric man as "savage".
