Covers the examination, identification and interpretations of plant remains in tropical archaeology, whilst also the origins, spread, distribution and past use of tropical plants for food and other purposes.
`This marvellous volume details the latest advances in the analysis and interpretation of archaeobotanical remains from tropical areas. … a wealth of useful information on the various kinds of plant materials that the archaeologist may retrieve from tropical sites … Hather and his authors are to be congratulated for laying the basis for a potentially powerful interdisciplinary approach to the problem of agricultural origins.' - Antiquity
