Editorial Reviews


Stands out as one of the most valuable multi-authored contributions, both methodically and substantively, to have appeared for many years. --Journal of Field Archaeology

More About the Author

T. Douglas Price was born in New Haven in 1945. Many homes during childhood. Louisville and Kansas City stand out. Educated and semi-acculturated at the University of Michigan. Doug is Weinstein Professor of European Archaeology emeritus and the former Director of the Laboratory for Archaeological Chemistry at the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he was on the faculty for more than 37 years. He was also 6th Century Chair in Archaeological Science in the Department of Archaeology at the University of Aberdeen, now retired. He did archaeological fieldwork on early agriculture in Denmark for many years and conducts laboratory studies of isotopes in human tooth enamel to learn about prehistoric migration and mobility. He is the author of a number of archaeology books and articles. He likes archaeology, small children, food, football, family, and Anne Birgitte. He doesn't like long, self-promoting descriptions of book authors.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am very interested in the subject of the origins of agriculture and found this book very helpful

It shows what little we know about a very complex transition from hunting/gathering to farming and the different theories about it
