Part of the Interdisciplinary Contributions to Archaeology book series (IDCA)


A large number of archaeologists working in Europe have made detailed studies of a wide range of materials. Mastering the diversity and complexity of this European prehistoric data is a challenge. The body of archaeological data and publications has grown greatly since the 1970s, making it very difficult for any archaeologist even to master small parts of various sources. Writing syntheses covering large geographical areas is becoming much more difficult and many worthwhile studies cannot be included in this survey. We should not shrink from writing broad overviews, otherwise we will be limited to prehistories of Yorkshire, Brittany, Scania or Silesia.
