If the networks we see in the ancient evidence correspond to networks generated from the computational simulation of our models for the ancient economy, we have a powerful tool for exploring antiquity, for playing with different ideas about how the ancient world worked (cf. This is a different material culture from that in the north, and the origins of the Nagada culture are probably to be found among indigenous hunter-gatherers and fishermen living along the Nile.

Social networks can be discerned in archaeological materials since artefacts are the direct result of social relationships (Knappett 2011; Coward 2010; Graham and Ruffini 2007: 325-331). This narrative (which many actually consider to be innovative) in fact reiterates a common canon of thought – not only within the archaeological discourse – but within the history of Western philosophy.

Evidence shows that ancient Shahdad had a large metalworking industry by this time. Some years ago Roger Moorey set out to remedy this situation, and his immensely useful BAR volume, Materials and manufacture in Ancient Mesopotamia: the evidence of archaeology and art, was published in 1985. On the contrary, the evidence for crisis has continued to accumulate. It is one concerned with the evolution from hominids to humans or, synonymously, with the transition from hunting to industry and the subordination of nature by human reason.
