520    "Globalization in Prehistory challenges traditional 
       historical and archaeological discourse about the drivers 
       of social and cultural connectivity in the ancient world. 
       It presents archaeological case studies of emerging 
       globalization from around the word, from the Mesolithic 
       period, through the Bronze and Iron Ages, to more recent 
       historical times. The volume focuses on those societies 
       and communities that history has bypassed - nomads, 
       pastoralists, fishers, foragers, pirates and traders, 
       among others. It aims for a more complex understanding of 
       the webs of connectivity that shaped communities living 
       outside and beyond the urban, agrarian states that are the
       mainstay of books and courses on ancient civilizations and
       trade. Written by a team of international experts, the 
       rich and variable case studies demonstrate the important 
       role played by societies that were mobile and dispersed in
       the making of a more connected world long before the 
       modern era"--|cProvided by publisher
