Summary: "Long before there were organized religions there were shamans. As this book ably demonstrates, archaeological remains - from cave paintings to bog bodies to Bronze Age vessels - show that shamanism was endemic among ancient European peoples from the Stone Age to the early post-Roman era. Most shamans occupied a marginal, dual position in their communities and functioned as liaisons with the spirit-world through the medium of trance. The authors draw on recent archaeological research in their quest for the shaman."--Jacket.
