Once upon a time, archaeology and anthropology were closely related fields of research. Today, they have drifted apart. This talk is a reflection on David Wengrow's book, co-authored with David Graeber, The Dawn of Everything: A New History of Humanity (Macmillan Audio, 2021), which is an attempt to see what happens when you put them back together again, after a period of mutual estrangement. The results are surprising and suggest they have significant implications across the social sciences.
