Description - Prehistoric Europe by Andrew Jones
The study of European prehistory has been crucial to the development of the discipline of archaeology - by studying the archaeology of ancient Europe, scholars developed the "Three Ages" framework of technological development. The term itself - prehistory - is derived from early descriptions of the archaeology of Europe. And ever since political changes fostered greater levels of cooperation among European archaeologists, accounts of European prehistory continue to undergo major changes. Prehistoric Europe: Theory and Practice provides a comprehensive overview of the wide-ranging contemporary debates in the study of European prehistory. Written to reflect the immense changes in the field, the volume presents essays by some of the most dynamic researchers and leading European scholars in the field today. Ranging from the Neolithic period to the early stages of the Iron Age, and from Ireland and Scandinavia to the Urals and the Iberian Peninsula, the book offers a truly contemporary approach to the ever-evolving study of European prehistory.
