V. Gordon Childe

Vere Gordon Childe (14 April 1892 - 19 October 1957) is considered the father of modern archaeology. He specialised in the study of European prehistory. A vocal socialist, Childe accepted the socio-economic theory of Marxism and was an early, though unorthodox, proponent of Marxist archaeology. Childe was the author of several well-known books on the subject of archaeology and prehistory.
