This course examines the thesis that the basic characteristics of European culture were firmly fixed during the Neolithic Age. This epoch of human experience from about 8000 B.C. to about 1350 B.C., also called the New Stone Age but more accurately described as the Agricultural Revolution, was the biggest technological shift in human history, establishing patterns of livelihood and social and religious order not decisively changed until the 18th century's Industrial Revolution. The lectures focus on the Anatolian "proto-city" of Зatal Hьyьk in Asia Minor; then three manifestations of the continental "French Culture," namely, the Cardial, Danubian, and Chassean; and finally, the Windmill Hill Culture of southern Britain, which includes the mysterious cult centers of Avebury and Stonehenge.
