About the Authors
  • Palaeolithic societies have been a neglected topic in the discussion of human origins. But in the past forty years archaeologists have recovered a wealth of information from Palaeolithic sites throughout the European continent that reveal many illuminating facets of social life over this 500,000-year period. Clive Gamble, introducing a new approach to this material, interrogates the data for information on the scale of social interaction, and the forms of social existence. The result is a reconstruction of ancient human societies, and a fresh perspective on the unique experience of human beings.

    • Reconstructs ancient human societies
    • A pan-European overview of the archaeological evidence
    • Explains the unique social life of humans by using archaeological data

    'This book is essentially a 'state of the art', a synthesis of work which has been done during the past four decades on European Palaeolithic history. As such, the very extensive bibliography is particularly valuable.' Kleio
