Based on the author's thesis, this study focuses on local hand-made Late Iron Age pottery traditions of Dacia, a region which was to become a Roman province in 106 AD. Mircea Negru presents a typology of nature hand-made storage, kitchen and tablewares and argues that these types of ceramics continued to be produced even after the first Roman colonists arrived due to local demand, conservatism and the sheer popularity of these vessels among the local population.

European Prehistory: A Survey traces humans from their earliest appearance on the continent to the Rise of the Roman Empire, drawing on archaeological research from all over Europe. It includes the Paleolithic, Mesolithic, Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. Throughout these periods, the major developments are explored using a wide range of archaeological data that emphasizes aspects of agricultural practices, gender, mortuary practices, population genetics, ritual, settlement patterns, technology, trade, and warfare. Using new methods and theories, recent discoveries and arguments are presented and previous discoveries reevaluated. This work includes chapters on European geography and the chronology of European prehistory. A new chapter has been added on the historical development of European archaeology. The remaining chapters have been contributed by archaeologists specializing in different periods. The second edition of European Prehistory: A Survey is enhanced by a glossary, three indices and a comprehensive bibliography, as well as an extensive collection of maps, chronological tables and photographs.

Analogy was an integral part of antiquarian archaeology and in parts of the world is still popular. This collection of sixteen international essays discusses past abuses, including the comparison of some societies with European working classes or false racist analogy in the Aegean. However, the contribution of these methods to the evolution of modern archaeology is recognised as a valuable one. Ethnographic or historic analogy, such as comparison with oral or written local traditions, is shown to be still of merit in the archaeology of certain countries, such as Brazil.
