Industry and Society in Late Prehistoric Europe

  • Peter S. Wells

Abstract

My remarks will focus on one aspect of the theme of this volume, and that is production, specifically industrial, as opposed to subsistence production. The role of trade in the development of centers and the emergence of towns, cities, and civilization has been much discussed among American and British anthropological archaeologists, with reference to developments in both the Old and New Worlds. Production of goods for such trade was of course necessary to provide something to trade, yet the manufacturing side of the equation has received relatively little attention.
