New publication from Dr Linda Fibiger
The School was delighted to hear about an important new publication co-edited by Dr Linda Fibiger, Senior Lecturer in Human Osteoarchaeology.
The first in a four-volume set, 'The Cambridge World History of Violence, Volume I' was published in the UK on 26 March. The set is co-edited by SHCA's Dr Linda Fibiger and Dr Mark Hudson, with the late Dr Garrett Fagan and Professor Matthew Trundle.
The collection is the first of its kind to provide a comprehensive examination of violence from prehistory to the present and is at the cutting edge of the history of violence, taking into account the latest scholarship. Unlike many previous works, this book does not focus only on warfare but examines violence as a broader phenomenon. New archaeological analyses of skeletal trauma pioneered by Dr Fibiger are transforming the understanding of prehistoric violence and this volume provides a detailed update of that exciting work.
The School sends its warmest congratulations to Linda and Mark on publication.
