WRITTEN IN STONE: A Journey Through the Stone Age and the Origins of Modern Language
Combines detective work, mythology, ancient history, archaeology, the roots of society, technology and warfare, and the sheer fascination of words to explore the original mother tongue, first spoken in Stone Age times, 6,500 years ago. In lively and often funny chapters, Stevens uncovers the most influential and important words used by our Neolithic ancestors, and still in use today.
