The First Civilizations
The Archaeology of Their OriginsBook - 2003
First published in 1968, Daniel's analysis of the archaeological evidence for the world's earliest civilisations has now been reprinted. Based on a series of lectures, Daniel discusses the history of excavation in the Near East and Egypt before discussing the evidence for the Sumerians, Egypt, China and the Americas in turn. This is a well-presented and accessible study with notes confined to the back.
