Prehistory: The Making of the Human Mind - Paperback

ISBN: 0753824272

[SR: 2857407], Paperback, [EAN: 9780753824276], Phoenix, Phoenix, Book, [PU: Phoenix], Phoenix, This book outlines human origins – the growth of farming, the rise of urbanism and the emergence of civilization – on a global scale. It traces the patterns and processes that led human societies in just ten thousand years from small hunter-gatherer groups armed with basic tools to nation states with advanced technologies. Renfrew challenges the conventional idea of the ‘human revolution’ – that homo sapiens emerged some 100,000 years ago and that at the revolutionary time (40,000 years ago), everything changed. This view holds that at the same time self-consciousness and language emerged, and was quickly followed by cave art and new stone tools. Renfrew contends that these things did not take place all at the same time, and that the technological and cultural changes that began around 10,000 years ago were due to changes in our states of mind. By examining the material objects left behind by early Man and reconstructing the prehistoric mind, Renfrew argues that new concepts of value, commodity and prestige were crucial to the human revolution, creating trading relations that in turn made city states possible. This book will range from the hunter-gatherers of Australia to the great civilizations of Mesoamerica to give a startling new account of how human beings escaped, 11242, Archaeology, 3377866011, Politics & Social Sciences, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books

Prehistory - Paperback

2008, ISBN: 9780753824276

ID: 9780753824276

A brief and original prehistory of the world Prehistory covers human existence before written records, i.e. most of human existence. But it also refers to the discipline through which we scrutinize prehistoric times. PREHISTORY begins by looking at the discovery of a remote human past and the subsequent dramatic growth of the study of prehistory: early archaeology; geology; Darwin's ideas of evolution; cave paintings; fossil discoveries of human ancestors; museums and collections; radiocarbon dating and DNA analysis. Renfrew challenges the conventional assumption of an all-important 'human revolution' 40,000 years ago - when Homo Sapiens first appeared in Europe - and suggests that the key developments were much later. The author's case-studies range widely, from Orkney to the Balkans, from the Indus Valley to Peru, from Ireland to China, and provide fresh insights on landmark monuments such as the Egyptian pyramids, the Valley of the Kings, Stonehenge and the sacrificial burial pyramids at Teotihuacan in Mexico. The book closes with a fascinating chapter on the transition from Prehistory to History, on early writing systems.
