Description - The Archaeology of Mediterranean Prehistory by Emma Blake

This book offers a comprehensive introduction to the archaeology of Mediterranean prehistory and an essential reference to the most recent research and fieldwork. It is the only book available to offer general coverage of Mediterranean prehistory. It is written by 14 of the leading archaeologists in the field. It spans the Neolithic through the Iron Age, and draws from all the major regions of the Mediterranean's coast and islands. It presents the central debates in Mediterranean prehistory - trade and interaction, rural economies, ritual, social structure, gender, monumentality, insularity, archaeometallurgy and the metals trade, stone technologies, settlement, and maritime traffic - as well as contemporary legacies of the region's prehistoric past. The structure of text is pedagogically driven. It engages diverse theoretical approaches so students will see the benefits of multivocality.
