About the Author

Professor Clive gamble is Professor of Archaeology at the University of Southampton. he is also the official new face of Archaeology for Channel 5


The author, a British anthropologist and archaeologist, asserts that fundamental issues about world prehistory go unexamined and that the question we ought to be asking is, ``Why were humans everywhere?'' In the course of exploring this question, Gamble draws upon a stunning range of sources, from fossil and tool-making finds of the past two centuries to routes of global colonization that lead out of sub-Saharan Africa. Gamble's ability to present an enormous depth and breadth of information in a clean and often witty style is nothing short of breathtaking. He argues that colonization was a purposeful process, the result of behavioral change or ``exaptation'' rather than ``adaptation.'' Gamble aims throughout to emphasize our common humanity with our ancestors in prehistory. His questions and vision will no doubt raise intense scholarly debates. Recommended for informed readers and specialists.-- Joan Gartland, Detroit P.L.
