The description (from the above link):
"CLAY: The History and Evolution of Humankind's

Examines the crucial role that clay has played in
the development of the culinary arts, the rise of
international trade, the invention of writing, and
the construction of towns and cities. Not bad for

dates back 30,000 years. Photos. 272 pages.

I have no affiliation with the bookseller. You
