The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.

'The Past' is an area of research that is important to many fields: Historians, Curators, Paleontologists, and Archaeologists. In this study of the past, archaeologists are focused on the material remains of our ancestors. Those involved in prehistory have only the artifacts to study and often need to make assumptions and interpretations about past societies and their behavior based on their material culture. Those involved in historical or post medieval archaeology have not only the material remains but often a historical record to refer to find their answers about past societies and their behavior. Historical is a branch of global archaeology that has grown in the last 30 years from a North American-based area of research to a global community of archaeologists each studying their area of the world in a historical context. Where historical archaeology started in the post-colonial societies (US, Canada, Australia) it has not expanded to Europe, Africa and South America. This seminal International Handbook of Historical Archaeology brings together a global group of authors, each discussing their work around the world. Along with the case studies, the theoretical themes in historical archaeology such as capitalism, gender and race are also discussed. This reference work belongs on the bookshelf of every historical archaeologists as well as being used in historical archaeology courses at the graduate level
