"This remarkable book does precisely what its title suggests: it provides an account of the archaeology of Mediterranean prehistory that treats the Mediterranean as a single unit. A galaxy of prominent prehistorians traces themes and topics from the Levant to Spain, enabling the reader to acquire a sense of the shape of prehistory across the whole of this extraordinary space." Robin Osborne, University of Cambridge


"Blake and Knapp's volume demonstrates that new approaches to the Mediterranean, taking as central concerns the nature of culture and cultural heritage, are breathing new life into studies of that region." Chris Gosden, University of Oxford
