'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

"This volume presents the results of archaeological excavations that took place between 1999 and 2003 at Sewerby Cottage Farm, Bridlington, in advance of the construction of over 300 houses. The work uncovered a rare group of Neolithic buildings, from Iron Age burials and a Romano-British farmstead. The material remains were analysed by many different specialists and their interpretations have been brought together to tell the story of how this landscape was occupied between c. 3500 BC and c. 900 AD."--BOOK JACKET.

In recent years archaeologists and paleontologists have become increasingly interested in how and why vertebrate animal remains become, or do not become, fossils. Vertebrate Taphonomy introduces interested researchers to the wealth of analytical techniques developed by archaeologists and paleontologists to help them understand why prehistoric animal remains do or do not preserve, and why those that preserve appear the way they do. This book is comprehensive in scope, and will serve as an important work of reference for years to come.

The Analysis Of Animal Bones From Archeological Sites

Author : Richard G. Klein

In growing numbers, archeologists are specializing in the analysis of excavated animal bones as clues to the environment and behavior of ancient peoples. This pathbreaking work provides a detailed discussion of the outstanding issues and methods of bone studies that will interest zooarcheologists as well as paleontologists who focus on reconstructing ecologies from bones. Because large samples of bones from archeological sites require tedious and time-consuming analysis, the authors also offer a set of computer programs that will greatly simplify the bone specialist's job. After setting forth the interpretive framework that governs their use of numbers in faunal analysis, Richard G. Klein and Kathryn Cruz-Uribe survey various measures of taxonomic abundance, review methods for estimating the sex and age composition of a fossil species sample, and then give examples to show how these measures and sex/age profiles can provide useful information about the past. In the second part of their book, the authors present the computer programs used to calculate and analyze each numerical measure or count discussed in the earlier chapters. These elegant and original programs, written in BASIC, can easily be used by anyone with a microcomputer or with access to large mainframe computers.
