Clark, John Grahame Douglas


Born July 28, 1907, in Shortlands, Kent. British archaeologist. Professor at Cambridge University (1952).

Clark’s principal works are devoted to prehistoric archaeology and history, including the history of the development of primitive economy, and make use of ethnological data as well as archaeological data. He favors idealistic conceptions that exaggerate the role of the natural environment in the development of human culture. He also holds the view that cultural elements penetrated into Europe from the East.
