This is a unique introduction and primer into the new discipline of cognitive archaeology.
The Rise of Homo sapiens: The Evolution of Human Thinking presents a provocative theory about the evolution of the modern mind based on archaeological evidence and the working memory model of experimental psychologist Alan Baddeley. The text introduces scientists and college students (at all levels) to the fascinating interface between the worlds of archaeology and cognitive science.
