Written by one of the leading archaeological writers in the worldin a simple, jargon-free narrative stylethis brief, well-illustrated account of the major developments in the human past makes world prehistoryuniquely accessible to complete beginners. World Prehistorycovers the entire world, not just the Americas or Europe, placing major emphasis on both theories and the latest archaeological and multidisciplinary approaches. The main focus is on four major developments: the origins of humanity; the appearance and spread of modern humans before and during the late Ice Age- including the first settlement of the Americas; the beginnings of food production; and the rise of the first civilizations.
