This introduction to the complex and manifold study of childhood and children in the past is one of the first presentations dedicated to socialisation that combines both interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches to the field. On the theoretical and methodological level, the author reflects upon some general and particular aspects of this type of study, sums up the contributions to the volume and looks at significant tendencies and trends for future work in the recent research represented by established and up-coming scholars in the disciplines of anthropology, archaeology, classical studies and ethnohistory.
