Inhaltsangabe: Monuments in Central and Western Europe have proved to be older than their supposed Near-Eastern forerunners, and the record must be almost completely rewritten in the light of these new dates. Before Civilisation is an attempt to do this with the help of analogies from more recent and well-documented primitive societies.
Über den Autor: Colin Renfrew was born in 1937 and studied natural sciences and archaeology at Cambridge, graduating with first-class honours. While at Cambridge, he was President of the Union.
