Is a comprehensive and engaging survey of humanity's past three million years. It brings together theories and archaeological examples to pose questions about who we are and the means by which humanity evolved into what it is today.

COVERS:
Origins and evolution of culture;
Origins of modern humans and human behaviors;
Origins of agriculture;
Origins of complex societies, civilizations, and pre-industrial states.

Integrating theoretical approaches with archaeological data from the Middle East, Mesoamerica, North and South America, Egypt, China, the Indus Valley, and temperate Europe, reveals how archaeologists decipher the past.

It demonstrates how theory and method are combined to derive interpretations and also considers how interpretations evolve as a result of accumulating data, technological advances in recording and analyzing data sets, and theoretical perspectives.
