A Social Archaeology of Households in Neolithic Greece: An Anthropological Approach

A Social Archaeology of Households in Neolithic Greece: An Anthropological Approach (Cambridge Studies in Archaeology) by Stella G. Souvatzi
April 14, 2008 | ISBN: 0521836891 | Pages: 329 | PDF | 14 MB

The study of households and everyday life is increasingly recognized as fundamental in social archeological analysis.
