This is a brief survey of world archaeology, designed for readers with no previous experience of the subject. The book should appeal to those who want an overview of the major developments in the early human past. Its global coverage describes not only the familiar areas like Europe and North America, but also the Pacific, Southeast Asia and South America. In addition, special attention has been paid to recent findings on the evolution of the species and on such popular contemporary topics as the origins of gender differences in the division of labour.
