George Frison’s Prehistoric Hunters of the High Plains has been the standard text on plains prehistory since its first publication in 1978, influencing generations of archaeologists. Now, a third edition of this classic work is available for scholars, students, and avocational archaeologists. Thorough and comprehensive, extensively illustrated, the book provides an introduction to the archaeology of the more than 13,000 year long history of the western Plains and the adjacent Rocky Mountains. Reflecting the boom in recent archaeological data, it reports on studies at a wide array of sites from deep prehistory to recent times examining the variability in the archeological record as well as in field, analytical, and interpretive methods. The 3rd edition brings the book up to date in a number of significant areas, as well as addressing several topics inadequately developed in previous editions.

Have humans always waged war? Is warring an ancient evolutionary adaptation or a relatively recent behavior--and what does that tell us about human nature? In War, Peace, and Human Nature, editor Douglas P. Fry brings together leading experts in such fields as evolutionary biology, archaeology, anthropology, and primatology to answer fundamental questions about peace, conflict, and human nature in an evolutionary context. The chapters in this book demonstrate that humans clearly have the capacity to make war, but since war is absent in some cultures, it cannot be viewed as a human universal. And counter to frequent presumption the actual archaeological record reveals the recent emergence of war. It does not typify the ancestral type of human society, the nomadic forager band, and contrary to widespread assumptions, there is little support for the idea that war is ancient or an evolved adaptation. Views of human nature as inherently warlike stem not from the facts but from cultural views embedded in Western thinking. Drawing upon evolutionary and ecological models; the archaeological record of the origins of war; nomadic forager societies past and present; the value and limitations of primate analogies; and the evolution of agonism, including restraint; the chapters in this interdisciplinary volume refute many popular generalizations and effectively bring scientific objectivity to the culturally and historically controversial subjects of war, peace, and human nature.

“A unique, significant contribution to our maturing studies of the Clovis era.”—Gary Haynes, author of The Early Settlement of North America: The Clovis Era The Paleoindian Clovis culture is known for distinctive stone and bone tools often associated with mammoth and bison remains, dating back some 13,500 years. While the term Clovis is known to every archaeology student, few books have detailed the specifics of Clovis archaeology. This collection of essays investigates caches of Clovis tools, many of which have only recently come to light. These caches are time capsules that allow archaeologists to examine Clovis tools at earlier stages of manufacture than the broken and discarded artifacts typically recovered from other sites. The studies comprising this volume treat methodological and theoretical issues including the recognition of Clovis caches, Clovis lithic technology, mobility, and land use.

"The ice age hunters of the Rocky Mountains were some of North America's earliest inhabitants. Although many scholars had long suspected that humans entered the Americas at an early date, no concrete proof existed until the find at Folsom, New Mexico, in 1926. There, J.D. Figgens of the Denver Museum of Natural History excavated fossil bison bones in direct association with human-made fluted stone points, demonstrating for the first time that humans and the ice age bison were contemporaries in the American Southwest. In the years following the Folsom discovery, new sites came to light that further confirmed the presence of late Pleistocene hunters in North America." "Since the initial discoveries of ice age hunters in America, the ensuing 65 years have witnessed a rapidly enlarged database and the development of increasingly sophisticated analytical techniques that are reinterpreting the archaeological record." "Ice Age Hunters of the Rockies explores the many questions that still surround the Pleistocene cultures of 12,000 years ago and the adaptations of these early civilizations to the last great ice age. In this important volume, a diverse group of top scholars discuss issues such as the time of arrival of the first Americans, adaptations to various environments, and the use by early people of high-altitude sites."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Am Nordrand der Arabischen Halbinsel treten in vorchristlicher Zeit in einem Zeitabstand von jeweils rund 700 Jahren neue semitische Volkerschaften mit eigener Sprache auf: die Akkader kurz nach 3000 v. Chr., die Kanaanaer ab ca. 2100 v. Chr., die Aramaer ab ca. 1400 v. Chr. und die Araber ab ca. 700 v. Chr. Auaerhalb dieser Abfolge steht das Sudarabisch-Athiopische, das aus sprachgeschichtlichen Grunden in die Mitte des 3. Jtd. v. Chr. zuruckreichen muss, auch wenn es erst ab ca. 1000 v. Chr. bezeugt ist. Aus diesen Tatsachen leitet Burkhart Kienast die Notwendigkeit einer historischen Betrachtung der semitischen Sprachen ab und folgt konsequent diesem Ansatz. Daraus resultieren neue Erkenntnisse auf fast allen Gebieten der Grammatik, etwa bei den aus dem Akkadischen gewonnenen Gesetzen der Nominalbildung, die grundsatzlich auch fur alle anderen semitischen Sprachen gelten, oder bei der Deutung der verbalen Tempora aus einem Nominalsatz, woraus sich der Zwang zur mehrfachen Umgestaltung des Verbalsystems ergibt. Verschiedene Punkte deuten darauf hin, dass das Semitisch im IV. Jahrtausend einen tiefgreifenden Wandel von einer Ergativsprache zu einer Sprache mit aktiver Verbalauffassung durchgemacht hat. Das Altsemitische (Akkadische) hat die typische Semitische Sprachstruktur noch nicht gefunden; sie konnte erst nach einigen Korrekturen (z.B. bei dem Status des Nomens und im Verbalsys-tem) ihre endgultige Auspragung erfahren.

It tries to redress the balance by examining subsistence and settlement strategies from the perspective of gender.
