An integrated picture of prehistory as an active process of discovery.


World Prehistory and Archaeology: Pathways through Time, third edition, provides an integrated discussion of world prehistory and archaeological methods. This text emphasizes the relevance of how we know and what  we know about our human prehistory.

Archaeological methods are introduced in the first two chapters. Succeeding chapters then address the question of how  we know the past to provide an integrated presentation of prehistory.
