Overview

...As an archaeologist I deal with concrete, material things as much as any natural scientist. But as a prehistorian I must treat my objects always and exclusively as concrete expressions and embodiments of human thoughts and idead - in a word of knowledge. On the other hand, as a prehistorian I can never deal with individuals as a literary historian can, my objects must always be memebrs of a class... (from the book)

 

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.
