Origins and Revolutions - Human Identity in Earliest Prehistory

In this innovative study Clive Gamble presents and questions two of the most famous descriptions of change in prehistory. The first is the `human revolution`, when evidence for art, music, religion and language first appears. The second is the economic and social revolution of the Neolithic period. Gamble identifies the historical agendas behind `origins research` and presents a bold new alternative to these established frameworks, relating the study of change to the material basis of human identity. He examines, through artefact proxies, how changing identities can be understood using embodied material metaphors and in two major case-studies charts the prehistory of innovations, asking, did agriculture really change the social world? This is an important and challenging book that will be essential reading for every student and scholar of prehistory.

 Presents an entirely new framework for understanding change in prehistory  Keynote work by one of the best known, most innovative and most accessible of contemporary prehistorians  Theoretically innovative, supported with in-depth case-studies
