Understanding the Neolithic


Understanding the Neolithic is a ground-breaking investigation of the period 4000 - 2200 BC. Whilst thoroughly examining the archaeological data of this region, Julian Thomas exposes the assumptions and prejudices which have shaped archaeologists' accounts of the distant past, and presents fresh interpretations informed by social theory, anthropolgy and critical hermeneutics. The book is a fully reworked and updated edition of the successful and controversial Rethinking the Neolithic , (1991), which provoked much heated debate on publication, especially in providing stimulating and radical alternative ways of interpreting archaeological evidence.
