About This Item

595 pages with figures, illustrations, plates, tables, charts, diagrams, maps and indices. Quarto (10" x 7 1/4") bound in original publisher's beige cloth with black labels and gilt lettering to spine in original jacket. foreword by Grahame Clark. First edition. Here-for the first time in one volume-is an authoritative explanation of the most recent scientific methods and procedures as they bear on modern archaeological investigation. In contributions prepared specifically for this work, fifty-five leading authorities-many of them pioneers of their own fields of study-evaluate the latest scientific advances in light of their significance for five pertinent areas of archaeological investigation: methods of dating, the study of past relationships between man and his environment, the examination of human remains, the analysis of artifacts, and methods of discovering sites. Destined to become the standard reference in the field, this work makes archaeologist, scientist and general reader alike aware of the ways in which archaeology and science can join forces in the study of the human past. Condition: Previous owner's name on front end paper. Jacket soiled, edge chips and tears, 1/2" chip at spine head.
