Metal Nomads and Culture Contact: The Middle East and North Africa

Details

This book contextualises and synthesises the major cultural changes that took place in the southern Levant and northeast Africa during the 5th and 4th millennia BC, with particular reference to animal husbandry, agriculture, exchange and interaction. The focus of the book is the introduction of metal to the southern Levant, Egypt and Lower Nubia and the role of pastoral nomadism in a context of cultural change and contact. The implications of these developments are discussed in a context of increased exchange and the development of more complex societies.
