A wide variety of languages are spoken throughout Asia, comprising different language families and some unrelated major language families include Altaic, Austroasiatic, Austronesian, Caucasian, Dravidian, Indo-European, Afroasiatic, Siberian, Sino-Tibetan and Kra–, but not all, have a long history as a written language. In this book Colin Renfrew directs remarkable new light on the links between archaeology and language, looking specifically at the puzzling similarities that are apparent across the Indo-European 4/5(2).
