Publisher's Synopsis

Every year, archaeology uncovers dozens of fragments that change the way we look at ourselves. The history of humanity is being rewritten as we speak, and The New Penguin Dictionary of Archaeology is your guide to this ever-fluctuating science. This fully up-to-date volume covers over three million years of human development across the world - from the emergence of the first humans via the cave paintings of Lascaux to the ancient civilisation of Mesopotamia and prehistoric cultures of Siberia. This fascinating reference book will be invaluable for academics, enthusiasts and the curious in this rich and perennially stimulating subject.
