About the Authors
  • Plants and animals originally domesticated in the Near East arrived in Europe between 7000 and 4000 BC. Was the new technology introduced by migrants, or was it an "inside job"? How were the new species adapted to European conditions? What were the immediate and long-term consequences of the transition from hunting and gathering to farming? These central questions in the prehistory of Europe are discussed here by leading specialists, drawing on the latest scholarship in fields as diverse as genetics and IndoEuropean linguistics.

    • Offers a pan-European perspective on the transition from hunting and gathering to farming
    • Contributions from leading authorities on each region
    • Uses information from radiocarbon dating to provide answers and inform larger questions about the global spread of farming

    "[The authors] move towards a richly complex explanation that simply can no longer be explained as ex Orient lux (from east, the light0. Well supplied with regional maps, lists of important radiocarbon dates, and a scattering of site plans and artifact illustrations, this is clearly a book for colleges, universities, and professionals, indeed a necessary addition to their libraries."
