The Prehistory of European Society is one of the Childe's final publications, and his last synthetic statement for a general audience of how he saw the development of this 'peculiar and individual manifestation of the human spirit'; it is important to put it in context both with respect to Childe's own life and more widely.


V. Gordon Childe was a remarkable man who is considered the father of modern archaeology who specialised in the study of European prehistory. A vocal socialist,Childe accepted the socio-economic theory of Marxism and was an early, though unorthodox, proponent of Marxist archaeology. Childe was the author of several well-known books on the subject of archaeology and prehistory, including The Dawn of European Civilization and What Happened in History.
