Summary

Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology, Second Edition, provides an invaluable and vastly updated overview of geoarchaeology and how it can be used effectively in the study of archaeological sites and contexts. Taking a pragmatic and functional approach, this book presents: 

  • a fundamental, broad-based perspective of the essentials of modern geoarchaeology in order to demonstrate the breadth of the approaches and the depth of the problems that it can tackle.
  • the rapid advances made in the area in recent years, but also gives the reader a firm grasp of conventional approaches. 
  • covers traditional topics with the emphasis on landscapes, as well as anthropogenic deposits and site formation processes and their investigation. 
  • provides guidelines for the presentation of field and laboratory methods and the reporting of geoarchaeological results. 
  • essential reading for archaeology undergraduate and graduate students, practicing archaeologists and geoscientists who need to understand and apply geoarchaeological methodologies, and help foster the dialog among diverse researchers investigating archaeological sites.  

Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology, Second Edition, is an ideal resource for undergraduate and graduate students in archaeology, and a great practical reference for practicing archaeologists and geoscientists who need to understand and apply geoarchaeological methodologies internationally.
