Full Title: A Bead Timeline, Vol. I: Prehistory to 1200 CE

Author Dr. James Lankton traces beads through time by following their role in the development of technology, social stratification, political organization, religion, ritual, writing and commerce as the beads influenced and interacted with the growth of civilization. Photos by Robert K. Liu. This volume, the first of two planned volumes, provides practical information on identifying beads. It focuses on organic beads, such as shell, ivory, coral and amber: stones such as turquoise, lapis lazuli, carnelian, chalcedony, rock crystal and jade: and other materials including glass and faience. The text includes reviews of important bead developments in Mesopotamia, the eastern Mediterranean and Egypt, the Hellenistic and Roman world, early Europe, South and Southeast Asia, China and Korea. The goal of the author is to enhance the readerís appreciation for beads in their cultural context.
