Check out Routledge's recently published and upcoming titles from our Archaeology list.

Routledge's concentration in Archaeology is only growing with a raft of recently published and upcoming titles. The Egyptian World, the book Ancient Egypt calls, “a must-have and must-read volume for anyone studying ancient Egypt” is now out in paperback. Also out in paperback is the fourth edition of Iron Age Communities in Britain: An account of England, Scotland and Wales from the Seventh Century BC until the Roman Conquest. Intended as a companion for the newcomer to professional archaeology, covering everything from first practical work to project design and heritage curation, Archaeological Investigation is a fantastic guide to on-the-ground archaeological fieldwork. Other titles to check out include Archaeology of Britain and Archaeology of Ancient Mexico.

Prehistoric Britain is coming in April. Also be sure to look for Archaeology: An Introduction in May of this year. The fifth edition of this great textbook has been updated with a lot of new information, including:

  • Updated material on the development in dating, DNA analysis, isotopes and population movement
  • Coverage of new themes such as identity and personhood
  • The impact of climate change and sustainability on heritage management
