"The Palaeolithic societies of Europe succeeds and replaces The palaeolithic settlement of Europe, published by Cambridge University Press in 1986"--T.p. verso.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 440-493) and index.
Palaeolithic societies have been a neglected topic in the discussion of human origins. But in the past forty years archaeologists have recovered a wealth of information from Palaeolithic sites throughout the European continent that reveal many illuminating facets of social life over this 500,000-year period. Clive Gamble, introducing a new approach to this material, interrogates the data for information on the scale of social interaction, and the forms of social existence. The result is a reconstruction of ancient human societies, and a fresh perspective on the unique experience of human beings. Winner of the Society for American Archaeology Book Award 2000.
