The Emergence of Culture in Europe

D. K. Bhattacharya (Author)
Synopsis It will not be entirely untrue to state that prehistoric archaeology cannot be understood in all its details by every archaeologist. Archaeologists can be seen labouring through statistics or primary books of Zoology or even Geology to have a better and fuller understanding of the subject. Likewise, historians cultural anthropologists, population scientists and sometimes even Marxist sociologists would like to comprehend all about prehistoric Archaeology in order to construct specific models of their theoretical research. The students, specially in the under graduate courses in Indian Universities, on the other hand have very little to go on to form a basic understanding of the subject. In the present book Dr. D. K. Bhattacharya tries to lay down the most important factual details which from the basic foundation for an entry into the subject. He does this in such a jargen free and extremely simplified manner that even a layman can learn prehistory much more easily from this book than any other known sources in print till date. This over simplification is primarily aimed to help the various social science and natural science students who want to learn prehistory. Over-simplification on the one hand, and enrichment of fullest and latest empirical details on the other, makes Emergence of Culture in Europe an unique publication which will be sought by everybody interested in the subject. This is specially because European prehistory for many Indians is almost impossible to catch up without the knowledge of at least French and German languages besides English. Also, one cannot avoid European prehistory as of regional significance because most of our significance because most of our prehistory is expressed in European thoughts and terms.

About the author

D. K. Bhattacharya

Dr. Bhattacharya, a veteran teacher in the Department of anthropology, University of Delhi, has spent several years in various Laboratories, Museums and Universities in Europe to compile a voluminous reference book on Palaeolithic Europe, which has been published in early 1977 from Holland. He has also taken keen interest in trying to undo the unpopularity of Indian prehistory in the west. He feels the main malady for this neglect is our total disregard of standard methods of research and reporting. In order to help this he has worked on a book of Palaeolithic typology. Which is shortly going to be published. He has studied by now tens of thousands of tools from classic sites in Europe and India and is totally utilizing this hard earned knowledge in trying to improve the teaching of Pre-historic Archaeology in India. His other publications are: 1) Introduction to Prehistoric Archaeology, 1977; 2) Palaeolithic Europe, 1977.
