Clark’s World Prehistory stands apart with that other great com-prehensive masterpiece . Wells’ The Outline of History published in 1920. Today this volume makes singular, salutary reading. The book shows that Grahame was quick to appreciate this especially if continuity within the region can be established. His first global synthesis, World Prehistory: An Outline (Clark 1961), was worldwide in its outlook so far. as. this was possible at the time.

'To qualify as human, a hominid has, so to say, to justify himself by works: the criteria are no longer biological so much as cultural'. In this 1977 book, Professor Grahame Clark goes on to trace the origins and development of human culture, in all its diversity, throughout the world. He follows the intellectual, material and social progress of mankind in each major region, from the earliest stone industries of two million years ago to the gradual and still incomplete attainment of literacy over the last five thousand years. He takes full account of peoples still preliterate when encountered in recent times by anthropologists as well as of those which nourished the great historic civilizations of mankind. Throughout he emphasizes the close relationship between environment and the character and speed of cultural development. The narrative is generously illustrated with photographs, drawings and maps, and there is a carefully selected list of references to the main sources used.

I'm surprised at how relevant this text still is given the time that's passed since its publication. Much has occurred in the fields of anthropology and archaeology in the years since, but Clark has presented us with a durable baseline of information that makes for a solid overview of world prehistory even today.

A good intro to prehistory but the author assumes you have some knowledge of the subject and dives right in citing references and using terms that may require the reader to do some supplemental reading.
Nahelm
a classic text for the study of preshistory. Excellent introduction to the topic
