Long before there were organized religions there were shamans. Archaeological remains show that shamanism was endemic among ancient European peoples from the Stone Age to the early post-Roman era. The authors draw on recent archaeological research in their quest for the shaman and support their conclusions with rich evidence. Miranda Aldhouse-Green’s interests lie in the ritual behaviour and practices of later prehistory, the Classical world, and the early mythic literature of Ireland and Wales. Stephen Aldhouse-Green’s expertise lies in much earlier prehistory. Here their specialties come together to produce an exciting, innovative study of ancient European religious practice and practitioners.
