"The Prehistory of Home addresses a topic of widely shared interest, and provides easy-to-understand evidence and well-argued interpretations. Jerry Moore is deft with words, phrasing, and building arguments, shifting effortlessly between antiquity and today while keeping the themes of home and prehistory clear. Alongside the rigorous archaeological and scientific research, Moore's wit and personality shine throughout."--Wendy Ashmore, coauthor of Household and Community in the Mesoamerican Past

5.0 out of 5 stars Deconstructing the home 23 Jun. 2012
By Cheryl L. Mcknight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In this thoroughly researched and engaging book, author and archaeologist Jerry Moore deepens our understanding of what it means to be human through careful analysis of human habitations throughout time. Moore holds up to the light the long-held belief that humankind's shift from hunter-gatherers to farmers created the need to stay in one place and postulates that humans developed settlements because they needed a place to store their "stuff."

A great read, not only as an outstanding contribution to the field of anthropology but also a clear example of an outstanding writer's ability to engage the reader.
