"Musket Ball and Small Shot Identification: A Guide "traces the history of musket balls and small shot, and explores their uses as lethal projectiles and in nonlethal alterations. Sivilich asks and answers a variety of questions to demonstrate how a musket ball found in a military context can help to interpret the site: Was it fired? What did it hit? What type of gun is it associated with? Has it been chewed, and if so, by whom or what? Was it hammered into gaming pieces?"

Bracelets, buckles, buttons, and beads. Clasps, combs, and chains. Items of personal adornment fill museum collections and are regularly uncovered in historical period archaeological excavations. But until the publication of this comprehensive volume, there has been no basic guide to help curators, registrars, historians, archaeologists, or collectors identify this class of objects from colonial and early republican America. Carolyn L. White helps the reader understand and interpret these artifacts, discussing their source, manufacture, materials, function, and value in early American life. She uses them as a window on personal identity, showing how gender, age, ethnicity, and class were often displayed through the objects worn. White draws not only on the items themselves, but uses their portrayal in art, contemporary writings, advertisements, and business records to assess their meaning to their owners. A reference volume for the shelf of anyone interested in early American material culture. Over 100 illustrations and tables.

Volume III (479 pages) is a comprehensive listing of all known Confederate rifled projectiles and their components. Chapter 10 includes a history of each named pattern, its inventor or origin, reasons for success or failure, pictures, drawings, sabot design, casing configuration, specifications, bursting charges, payloads, variants; and miscellaneous observations and historical observations. It includes all known Confederate shell, segmented shell, case shot, solid shot/bolt, incendiary, rifled canister (Confederate and Union) specimens identified to date, to include many pattern variants. This includes projectiles imported from Britain and used by the Confederacy. It has been expanded to show many patterns of British projectiles that were not used in the Civil War, but have been subsequently imported, so as to assist collectors in making a positive identification. There is a section titled "Miscellaneous and Unidentified Confederate Rifled Projectiles" which includes pictures, drawings and data on rare projectiles that are thought to be of the Civil War era or known to be of foreign origin, but are often confused with Union, Confederate, British or American patterns. Volume III addresses about 750 individual projectiles and several hundred variants of those patterns,including sub-patterns. It provides cross references (by page number) on every specimen, to projectile books published from 1861 to 2003 that contain a similar specimen, picture, data or text, making additional research easier.
