Book description

This book is the first synthesis of the archaeology of the Urals and Western Siberia. It presents a comprehensive overview of the late prehistoric cultures of these regions, which are of key importance for the understanding of long-term changes in Eurasia. At the crossroads of Europe and Asia, the Urals and Western Siberia are characterized by great environmental and cultural diversity which is reflected in the variety and richness of their archaeological sites. Based on the latest achievements of Russian archaeologists, this study demonstrates the temporal and geographical range of its subjects starting with a survey of the chronological sequence from the late fourth millennium BC to the early first millennium AD. Recent discoveries contribute to an understanding of issues such as the development of Eurasian metallurgy, technological and ritual innovations, pastoral nomadism and its role in Eurasian interactions, and major sociocultural fluctuations of the Bronze and Iron Ages.

Reviews

'… very useful …'

Source: European Journal of Archaeology

‘This book is extremely important and opens the way for non-Russian-speaking researchers to obtain a much fuller and clearer understanding of the available evidence. The volume should be on the shelves of any library covering Old World archaeology and ancient history.'

Source: American Journal of Archaeology

‘The authors have managed to produce an engaging book that invites further discussion. This fine-grained book provides the reader with an informed interpretive narrative which never loses sight of the big questions.'

Source: Antiquity

‘This volume is the first synthesis in English of the archaeological research on the area including the Urals and Western Siberia, and it presents an extensive overview of the many late prehistoric cultures that are thought to be key to understanding long-term changes across Eurasia.'
