9780306452536: Case Studies in Environmental Archaeology (Interdisciplinary Contributions to Archaeology)

This volume contains case studies in environmental archaeology that apply data obtained from various disciplines-including zooarchaeology, archaeobotany, human biology, and geoarchaeology-to explore important anthropological issues. Studies include geological and biological data from sites located in North America, the Caribbean basin, and South America. Rather than critiquing or advocating specific environmental techniques, each study demonstrates how and why the information obtained from their use is important to anthropologists and archaeologists.

Review:

`The volume will appeal to a broad spectrum of archaeologists. Professionals will find new research presented throughout, and individual case studies can be used as supplementary reading in both undergraduate and graduate classes. Extremely well illustrated, well referenced, and, unlike most archaeology books, extremely well indexed.'
Choice

`An excellent collection of papers that provides a truly exciting overview of current developments in a multidisciplinary field.'
Geoarchaeology: An International Journal, Vol. 12, No. 7, 1997
