Provides the chronological framework and reference materials necessary to investigate and interpret origins, relationships, and processes such as diffusion, migration, local evolution, change or survival, and the like covering the period from the earliest settlements down to a natural breaking point between 2000 and 1500 B.C. The present edition (2nd in 1965) comprises 29 contributions and an appendix, including several new areas and divisions of some older ones. Because of the welter of new material, the number of papers, and the size of the volume, the concentration has been limited to four major objectives: sequences, distributions and relationships, calibrated radiocarbon and relative dates, and pertinent bibliographies and sources.
