A first for this podcast is to have the author of the book on to talk about it, so we welcome John R Barrett to Prehi/stories, and Brian Wilkinson, a community archaeologist from Scotland where the book is based. The Whitestone Stories is a children's book but well worth the read for children of any age.
The Gathering Night, by Margaret Elphinstone
I go back to the Mesolithic in earnest in this episode and talk to Caroline Wickham-Jones and Spencer Carter about a wonderful tale that is part prehistorical fiction, part family saga, part whodunnit, the Gathering Night by Margaret Elphinstone. We also talk about the relative impact of natural disasters in prehistory.
