    By R.J.C. Atkinson

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Archaeology

This book provides a simple introduction to the principles...

  2. Tree-ring Dating and Archaeology

    By M.G.L. Baillie

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Archaeology

    The analysis of tree-ring patterns, or dendrochronology, is a very exact science and an important dating technique. The basis of the method is misleadingly simple: that overlap of successive older ring patterns can generate a master chronology and samples of unknown age can then be checked against...

    Edited by David L. Clarke

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Archaeology

  6. Archaeology by Experiment

    By John Coles

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Archaeology

    Experimental archaeology is a new approach to the study of early man. By reconstructing and testing models of ancient equipment with the techniques available to early man, we learn how he lived, hunted, fought and built. What did early man eat? How did he store and cook his food? How did he make...

    An Archaeologist's Field-work

  10. Surveying for Archaeologists and Other Fieldworkers

    By A.H.A. Hogg

    Series: Routledge Library Editions: Archaeology
