Economy and Society in Prehistoric Europe

Changing Perspectives

A Sherratt

Hardback (Printed to Order)
This book brings together a classic collection of Andrew Sherratt's work on the economic foundations of prehistoric Europe, which have put forward important new ideas about the development of farming, pastoralism, early technology and trade. In a series of contributions that have included wide-ranging syntheses and detailed local studies, he discusses their implications for the understanding of settlement-patterns, social structures, material culture, and less tangible aspects of prehistoric life such as the spread of languages and the use of narcotics.


Andrew Sherratt has with consistent perspicacity and success tackled manyof the major issues facing European archaeology ... a richly insightfultour d'horizon of Europe from the sixth to the second millennia BC.
