Nancy's Bookshelf: Ray Barnett #636
Retired biology professor Ray Barnett has a new book, Forgotten World: New Look at Neolithic Reveals Gardeners of Gaia and a Lifeline as Humanity Falters.
Barnett says archeology has a startling new understanding of the middle stone age and the new stone age.
He fell in love with China at Yale University, where he spent several years learning its history and language and earned an MBA in History.
After serving a year in Vietnam with the U.S. Army, he received a biology Ph.D. from Duke University.
His latest book describes Mesoneolithic societies in more prosperous and more sophisticated areas than the stone age implies.
Recent archaeological discoveries reveal that Neolithic humans saw the world with a fresh, startling vision.
