Ancient Society is a book which builds on the data about kinship and social organization presented in Morgan's 1871 'Systems of Consanguinity and Affinity of the Human Family'. It develops his theory of the three stages of human progress, i.e., from Savagery through Barbarism to Civilization. Contemporary European social theorists such as Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels were influenced by Morgan's work on social structure and material culture.
