Why does archaeology matter? How does studying prehistory help us
understand climate change? How can archaeological discoveries
challenge contemporary assumptions about gender? How has
archaeology been used and misused to support political and
nationalist agendas - and how can it help build a more diverse and
inclusive picture of our world by examining the people left out of
written history? Brian Fagan and Nadia Durrani address these and
other questions, exploring how archaeology's long-term perspective
offers unique views into the most challenging issues facing the
world today. With examples from around the globe - including a
female Viking burial in Sweden, controversies over the discovery of
the Kingdom of Mapungubwe in Southern Africa, and newly discovered
ancient farming techniques in South America - Bigger Than History
explores how the search for the past continues to inform our
understanding of the present.
