Seeking insight into prehistoric pottery manufacture and use, archaeologist James Skibo traveled to the remote Philippine highlands to live with the Kalinga people, once headhunters and one of the few groups in the world still using ceramics for cooking." "James Skibo's time in the Kalinga homeland was packed with the elements of a thriller novel: mystery, danger, sex, violence, death. He was witness to a world both subtly and vastly different from his own. In the course of his story, Skibo links his experiences to the development of modern archaeology, and such topics as human evolution, the peopling of the world, animal domestication, cultural logic, food taboos, basketball, Indiana Jones, even Imelda Marcos."--BOOK JACKET."
