Summary

Summary

An enticing survey for the general reader. The scope is broad, from discussion of the field of archaeology, and of human origins, to a survey of the early settlements and ancient kingdoms of the world, arranged by region. Thematic "portfolio" sections take up such topics as the origin of writing, metal use, textiles, and the potter's art. Abundantly and spectacularly illustrated. Lacks a bibliography.
