KIRKUS REVIEW

In a book which gives the answers to what archeology has contributed to our knowledge about prehistoric man, the author presents a fascinating picture of life before and during the ice age, the change from hunting to agriculture, the parallel development with the Greek and Roman Empires. And with each of the important archeological measures and discoveries described, we share the thrill of witnessing the period from which it came rather than its archeological importance alone. Captivating material for both student and layman.
