The fifth millennium BCE was a period of rapid social change. One of the key factors was the developments in technology which led to the rise of the metals industry. Archaeological finds from sites dating to the Chalcolithic period indicate the production and use of copper. 'Dawn of the Metal Age' examines a range of sites - from copper mines in Jordan and Israel to the villages of the northern Negev where copper was produced in household workshops, to a series of cave burials where a range of luxury metal goods were buried with the elite members of Chalcolithic society. Ancient technology is reconstructed from the archaeological evidence, which also illuminates the changing economic, social, religious and political environment of the time.

The ancient Maya shaped their world with stone tools. Lithic artifacts helped create the cityscape and were central to warfare and hunting, craft activities, cooking, and ritual performance. 'The Technology of Maya Civilization' examines Maya lithic artefacts made of chert, obsidian, silicified limestone, and jade to explore the relationship between ancient civilizations and natural resources. The volume presents case studies of archaeological sites in Guatemala, Mexico, Belize, and Honduras. The analysis draws on innovative anthropological theory to argue that stone artefacts were not merely cultural products but tools that reproduced, modified, and created the fabric of society.

Aus dem Niederländischen uebersetzt von A. Vervelde, Durchsicht des Textes: Johannes Hahn "Beschreibt in gedrängter Darstellung die Geschichte der Alten Welt und der Entstehung der europäischen Kultur und wendet sich zugleich auch an Interessierte auáerhalb des akademischen Betriebs. Klar herausgestellt werden namentlich di" allgemeinen Entwicklungslinien, ohne daá der Leser durch eine duerre Aufzählung von historischen Fakten ermuedet wird.ô Aus Empfehlungen fuer den Verband der niederländischen Volksbibliotheken "Es ist geradezu verblueffend, daá in so gedrängter Form so viel Information geboten, so viel erläutert und erhellt werden kann, ohne daá die Lektuere trocken, langweilig oder ermuedend wird - im Gegenteil: sie ist ein reiner Genuá. Das Hauptinteresse der Autoren gilt historisch allgemein wichtigen Erscheinungen der verschiedenen Epochen, wie gesellschaftlichen Strukturen, Machtverhältnissen, politischen Theorien, Erscheinungsformen der Kultur und der Religion. - Fazit: Ein aufs wärmste zu empfehlendes Lehrbuch, nicht nur fuer Studenten!"
