This book considers the archaeological and historical evidence for hunting and examines diverse topics such as rock-art, royal forests and parks, foxhunting, hunting techniques, strategies and weapons.

Sites including Creswell Crags, Chatsworth House, Stafford Castle, Cheddar Gorge, the New Forest and the Pictish symbol stones of Scotland are explored. New light is shed on the role of hunting in the nature of land appropriation by ancient elite classes and the influence they had on land tenure and how this shaped the British landscape.

Human-animal relationships, particularly horses and dogs, are examined through time and show how we evolved a highly dynamic symbiosis. Studies from the Continent and further afield are drawn upon, enabling an understanding of the role that horses may have played in the worldview of Britains Upper Palaeolithic hunters. In the first book to bring together all the periods, from the Palaeolithic to the modern era and to examine the archaeology and history of hunting, Hunting in Britain makes revealing insights into the nature of mans relationship with the natural world and our complex relationship with hunting and the modern world.
