The Prehistoric Society

Clive Gamble

Welcome to the website for the Prehistoric Society

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: These are exceptional times. Our normal programme of conferences and meetings is on hold while we all cope with the pandemic. However, our online activities on this website, on Facebook and on Twitter  will continue during self-isolation and lockdown to keep all prehistorians connected. Prehistorians form a global network investigating ideas, landscapes and artefacts from the deep past. Above all, this deep past unites us with a history of humanity that fascinates and enthrals. Let me wish all our on-line visitors an optimistic future supported by the friendship that our society embraces.

Professor Clive Gamble, President
