Summary: This well illustrated, full-color, site-by-site survey of prehistory captures the popular interest, excitement, and visual splendor of archaeology as it provides insight into the research, interpretations, and theoretical themes in the field. The new edition maintains the authors' innovative solutions to two central problems of the course: first, the text continues to focus on about 80 sites, giving students less encyclopedic detail but essential coverage of the discove ...show moreries that have produced the major insights into prehistory; second, it continues to be organized into essays on sites and concepts, allowing professors complete flexibility in organizing their courses.

New Features

  • This edition has been substantially updated and revised, dated material deleted and information added on new discoveries in archaeology. New art -- photos and line drawings -- improves the visual impact of the book. The bibliography at the end of the book has been expanded and revised.
  • New material in the first half of the book includes: new information on the first Americans, extinctions, genetics, the origins of agriculture, domestication, and extinct hominins (Chapter 1); new dates and information on recent discoveries of early hominins and more on bipedalism (2); further mention of the so-called ''hobbits'' from the island of Flores in Indonesia, and additional information on a number of new sites including, Kennewick, Hebior, Moundville, and the Jomon (3); and a new box on the peopling of the Pacific and a spectacular new Jomon site, Sannai Maruyama (5).
  • New material in the second half of the book includes: a discussion of the Caribbean in New World prehistory, new interpretations of the Inca quipu, the discovery of ancient noodles in China, new perspectives of the Moundville site in Alabama, and an expanded Chapter 12 conclusion that offers a more complete ending to the text and focuses on the value and importance of protecting the past, and on ethics and careers.
