Product description


"...I would consider adopting this textbook because is does not use the conventional organization of prehistory by continent, but instead organizes global history by concepts and themes.  I also enjoy the personal accounts provided within the “Discovering the Past” features." - Timothy E. Baumann, Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology


"…Especially given the way that I teach this course, this is by far the best textbook I have used for this class." - Kevin Vaughn, Purdue University


"I am already using this text and I am extremely happy with it.  I am never really happy with the texts, so this is a first!" - Renee B. Walker, SUNY College at Oneonta


"The text is very readable for an undergraduate student..." - Paul Mullins, Indiana University-Purdue University


"The author has written the book with students in mind who will react strongly to beautiful pictures." - Richard Blanton, Purdue University


"…Book is well balanced, especially including Asia. Good synthesis of anthropological theory with archaeology…" - Georgia L. Fox, California State University, Chico
