About the Author:

Michael Chazanis an Associate Professor in the Department of Anthropology and the Director of the Archaeology Centre at the University of Toronto. He earned his Ph.D. in anthropology at Yale University. Before coming to Toronto, Dr. Chazan was a postdoctoral fellow with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique in Paris and at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Among his field experience are excavations in New Jersey, France, Israel, Jordan, Egypt, and South Africa. Dr. Chazan's publications include a monograph on the Lower Paleolithic site of Holon, Israel, coauthored with Liora Kolska-Horwitz. Dr. Chazan is currently engaged in a project on the Earlier Stone Age of South Africa. The project pulls together an international team of researchers to study a series of spectacular sites located in the Northern Cape Province.

Review:

“I am quite impressed with the coverage of parts of the world far away from the author's own research and experience.”

  - Robert Tykot, University of South Florida

 

“Presents a well-digested, well-illustrated narrative of the human career, emphasizing both archaeological tools and products of archaeological investigation.”

  - LuAnn Wandsnider, University of Nebraska - Lincoln

 

“Both my students and I appreciate [Michael Chazan’s] writing style as academic yet accessible.”

  - Andrew Wyatt, University of Illinois at Chicago

 

“The author's writing style is smooth and approachable for students accustomed to today's information-technology permeated world. To my mind, he conveys an understanding of the demands of teaching a very different breed of students that have been educated in multi-media environments. That is a huge plus.”

  - Michael Danti, Boston University

 

“A comprehensive text for both those interested in archaeology and world prehistory. The essentials are there, without the "fluff" of other books on the subject. Great for introductory level students in the humanities and social sciences.”

  - Brad Biglow, Florida State College at Jacksonville

 

“A very good textbook for an introductory archaeological course with an emphasis on world prehistory.”

  - Brett Houk, Texas Tech University
