Book description

Renfrew, Colin. PREHISTORY: The Making of the Human Mind. (2007). ****. Renfrew was a professor of archaeology at Cambridge from 1981 to 2004, and really knows his stuff. Unfortunately, he was forced to cram all of it into an edition of less than 200 pages. This is a volume in the Modern Library Chronicles series, and a fine edition to that series. The author spends the first quarter of the book reviewing the state of archeology and anthropology prior to the 1940s, and ends up with the discovery of radiocarbon dating and its application to his field. Everything changed after that. It was now possible to sort out the relative ages of various archaelogical finds that did not have some written history associated with them. The usual definition that the author uses is that history begins when literacy begins, and that all that came before has to be sorted out using non-verbal means. With the advancement in dating techniques, there was now possible the study of world prehistory. The final three-fourths of the book deal with the ‘Prehistory of Mind.’ By that term, the author means assembling a better picture of how and why Homo sapiens progressed from their original migration out of Africa. The question then becomes: “If the arrival of the new species, Homo sapiens, with its higher level of cognitive capacity, its new kinds of behaviou, its sophisticated use of language, its enhanced self-consciousness, was so significant, why did it take so long for these really impressive innovations, which accompany agricultural revolution, to come about?” Evidence points to the migration of our species out of Africa about 100,000 years ago. There is no evidence, however, of any art or technology older than about 30,000 years ago. The question, then, is what happened in the intervening 70,000 years. Analysis of DNA has shown that genetic modification was essentially frozen 100,000 years ago, i.e., we, today, have the same genetic makeup as the early migrators. Some other force must have been at work. This force, now proposed and accepted by most archaeologists, was the development of mind within a cultural context. The development of a sedentary society, i.e., one not dependent on hunting/gathering, required a corresponding development in social skills, all of which are discussed in the book. This is semi-heavy reading, but well worth the effort. Recommended.
