About this book

John M. O'Shea explores this question by employing modern archaeological theory and analysis as well as mortuary theory to build a model of an Early Bronze Age society in the eastern Carpathian Basin. He focuses on the Maros communities and utilizes the densely encoded social information from their cemeteries to draw a picture of the Maros' social systems.

Reviews

`I imagine that every archaeologist...has grown dissatisfied with sherds, rocks, and bones, and wished to actually see the society of long ago that produced the archaeological assemblages....Yet the question that must be posed is `Can such modeling or reconstruction be done with any degree of rigor?'
