Summary
How do we understand the systemic interactions that took place in and between different regions of prehistoric Eurasia and their consequences for individuals, groups and regions on both a theoretical and empirical basis? Such interactions helped create economic and cultural spheres that were mutually dependent yet distinct. Systemic interactions in and between different regions of Eurasia over millennia were instrumental in the creation of mutually-dependent though distinct economic and cultural spheres. Bur how do we understand such interactions and their consequences for individuals, groups and regions both theoretically and empirically? This volume, emerging from a conference hosted in Sheffield in April 2008 in memory of Professor Andrew Sherratt and in honour of his contributions to large-scale economic history, presents some diverse archaeological responses to this problem. These range from ẁorld-systems' through̀ ritual economies' tò textile rivalries' and address the challenge of documenting, explaining and understanding the progressively more interwoven worlds of prehistoric Eurasia. --Book Jacket
