L.G. Freeman is a major scholar of Old World Paleolithic
prehistory and a self-described "behavioral paleoanthropologist."
Anthropology without Informants is a collection of
previously published papers by this preeminent archaeologist,
representing a cross section of his contributions to Old Work
Paleolithic prehistory and archaeological theory.
A socio-cultural anthropologist who became a behavioral
paleoanthropologist late in his career, Freeman took a unique
approach, employing statistical or mathematical techniques in his
analysis of archaeological data. All the papers in this collection
blend theoretical statements with the archeological facts they are
intended to help the reader understand.
Although he taught at the University of Chicago for the span of
his 40-year career, Freeman is not well-known among Anglophone
scholars, because his primary fieldwork and publishing occurred in
Cantabrian, Spain. However, he has been a major player in
Paleolithic prehistory, and this volume will introduce his work to
more American Archaeologists.
This collection brings the work of an expert scholar, to a broad
audience, and will be of interest to archaeologists, their
students, and lay readers interested in the Paleolithic era.
Subjects: Sociology, Archaeology, Anthropology, History
