Excerpt from Primitive Man In no branch of knowledge has there been more rapid advance during the past fifty years than in that which deals with the history of so-called "primitive" man. A generation or two ago, inquiry was rarely pushed beyond the sources of information supplied by written documents, coins, inscriptions, and such like materials. The possible existence of other materials throwing light on remote ages in which man had played a part - ages about which history was either silent, or recorded only myths and legends - was but here and there recognised. Apropos of "antiquarian research," Boswell reports Johnson as saying: "All that is really known of the ancient state of Britain is contained in a few pages. We can know no more than what the old writers have told us." That remark gauges the high-water level reached a little more than a century ago. And yet the evidence which Dr. Johnson declared non-existent was beneath the soil of his beloved London. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
