The twenty eight contributors to this book show how experimental and ethnographic approaches are being used to shed new light on the process of domestication, and harvesting techniques, tools and technology in the period just before and just after the appearance of agriculture. The book takes an explicity comparative approach, with chapters on SW Asia, Europe, Australia and Africa.
