    perfect for class

    Fantastic textbook. Although a multi-authored book, there is clear homogeneity in the presentation of the various chapters. The illustrations are really beautiful, it is almost an art book. It is a must have for who is interested in archaeology. It spans a period of several millions years. All the major archaeological sites are described, I recommend really to buy the latest edition, although older editions are available at discount price. The latest developments, like the sequencing of neanderthal DNA and others are discussed in this new edition and this is fascinating. Archaeology is really a science on the move.

    Bought this book for a class on World Archaeology. As an anthropologist I was intrigued by it, but there was way too much fluff. Could definitely have been condensed and edited better.

    It is okay.

    Great prehistory textbook for Universities! Are you a fan of being a sapien? This book could clue you in to your past, and the hominid evolutionary timeline and much more.

    This book arrived on time or before in the condition listed (used-good). The picture is the exact book which is what I was basing my purchase on. This purchase met all of my expectations.
