Neolithic by Susan McCarter
Book DescriptionThis excellent introductory textbook describes and explains the origins of modern culture- the dawn of agriculture in the Neolithic area. Written in an easy-to-read style, this lively and engaging book familiarises the reader with essential archaeological and genetic terms and concepts, explores the latest evidence from scientific analyses as varied as deep sea coring, pollen identification, radiometric dating and DNA research, condensing them into an up-to-date academic account, specifically written to be clear even the novice reader. Focusing primarily on sites in southwest Asia, Neolithic addresses questions such as: * Which plants and animals were the first to be domesticated, and how? * How did life change when people began farming? * What were the first villages like? * What do we know about the social, political and religious life of these newly founded societies? * What happened to human health as a result of the Neolithic Revolution? Lavishly illustrated with almost a hundred images, this enjoyable book is an ideal introduction both for students of archaeology and for general readers interested in our past.
