Proceedings of the V. Gordon Childe Centennial Conference in London on 8-9 May 1992. Although he died in 1964, Childe remains the world's most renowned prehistorian. His "What Happened in History", first published in 1942, is probably the most widely read book ever written by an archaeologist. In this book, distinguished prehistorians from around the world celebrate Childe's life and examine the continuing significance of his work. The contributors examine such persistent themes in Childe's thought as the nature of culture and the role of diffusion in cultural evolution and debate the question of whether Childe anticipated "processual archaeology" in his famous models of the Neolithic and Urban Revolutions. Also included are evaluations of Childe's early career in Australia, his relations with Soviet archaeology, including a previously unknown letter from Childe to Soviet archaeologists, and his impact on American archaeology.
