Welcome to


Between 2003 and 2006 this site was dedicated to the Venus of Willendorf and the Upper Palaeolithic culture of the Gravette. As much of the site's focus has become superseded by a book project currently being prepared for publication by the artist and philosopher, Alexander Harry Curtis, the site is no longer being maintained in its original form. For updates on the progress of the book project please follow

And select the book project, The Abstraction of Time and the Birth of Philosophy

Prior to the publication of Alexander Curtis' book, for an excellent introduction to the world of the Upper Palaeolithic the reader is referred to Alexander Marshack's classic work, The Roots of Civilisation.
