Ancient Jomon of Japan

כריכה קדמית
Cambridge University Press, 29 ביולי 2004 - 332 עמודים
Despite an incredibly rich prehistory covering a period of nearly ten thousand years, modern discussion of complex hunter-gatherer societies has tended to refer to the Jomon of Japan in a rather cursory fashion. This important but accessible text presents an overview of the archaeology of the Jomon Period between 10,000 and 3 00BC within the context of more recent complex hunter-gatherer societies, and aims to bridge the gap between academic traditions in Japanese and Anglo-American archaeology. It represents an invaluable source of reflection on the development of complexity in human history.
