About the Authors
  • What was daily life like in Italy between 6000 and 3500 BC? In this book, first published in 2007, John Robb brings together the archaeological evidence on a wide range of aspects of life in Neolithic Italy and surrounding regions (Sicily and Malta). Exploring how the routines of daily life structured social relations and human experience during this period, Robb provides a detailed analysis of how people built houses, buried their dead, made and shared a distinctive cuisine, and made the pots and stone tools that archaeologists find. He also addresses questions of regional variation and long-term change, showing how the sweeping changes at the end of the Neolithic were rooted in and transformed the daily practices of earlier periods. Robb links the agency of daily life and the reproduction of social relations with long-term patterns in European prehistory.

    • Systematic review of much Italian prehistory, including important recent work and much Italian language literature
    • Interprets archaeology within broad theoretical background relevant to current debates in Anglo-American archaeological theory
    • Discusses Neolithic people's lives in very broad ways, addressing as many different aspects of life as possible
