About the Authors
  • The European Bronze Age, roughly 2500 to 750 BC, was the last fully prehistoric period and crucial to the formation of the Europe emerging in the later first millennium BC. This book provides a detailed account of its material culture, comparing and contrasting evidence from different geographical zones, and drawing out the essential characteristics of the period. It looks at settlement, burial, economy, technology, trade and transport, warfare, and social and religious life. The result is a comprehensive study that will interest specialists and students, and be accessible to nonspecialists.

    • Based on the most recent researches in Bronze Age archaeology from all parts of Europe, while basing itself on the foundation of traditional scholarship
    • Deals with Europe as a whole, seeking to present a comprehensive view of the major phenomena apparent in the Bronze Age
    • Covers both theoretical and practical issues, but written in jargon-free language easily understood by specialists and lay readers
