    Chris Gosden has interests in the history of landscape and material culture in Britain, southeast Asia, the Pacific and Siberia. He has carried out archaeological fieldwork in Papua New Guinea, Turkmenistan, Borneo and Britain. In 2018 Viking will publish his book on the history of magic and science, showing the divergence of scientifically based societies arising in cities over the last 5000 years and the magic-oriented peoples of the steppe and forest, and how modern physics may be converging with a magical view of our relationship with the universe.
