The Atlas of World Archaeology

by Paul G. Bahn

Editorial Reviews

Bahn (archaeologist and author) and Barry Cunliff (emeritus, U. of Oxford) present an international team of experts who trace the story of human development in all parts of the world and demonstrate how archaeologists are constantly adding to our knowledge. The first part starts with the emergence of the earliest hominids in Africa and describes their evolution and spread throughout the world before the end of the last Ice Age. The second offers global coverage of major advances achieved by humankind in the next 10,000 years. The third divides the world into five broad geographical regions to take a closer look at these advances and to examine significant changes in human development in each one. Beautifully illustrated in color and b&w. Oversize: 9.5x12<">. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
