Europe Before History (New Studies in Archaeology) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The societies of the European Bronze Age produced elaborate artifacts and were drawn into a wide trade network extending over the whole of Europe, yet they were economically and politically undiversified. Kristian Kristiansen attempts to explain this paradox using a world-systems analysis, and provides a rich body of evidence to support his case. The result is a coherent overview of this period of European prehistory that addresses some of the larger questions raised in the study of the period.

Synopsis:

Examines the paradox of politically and economically undiversified European Bronze Age society despite wide trading networks.
