    By Chantal Conneller

    Series: Routledge Studies in Archaeology

    An Archaeology of Materials sets out a new approach to the study of raw materials.

Here Conneller...

  3. Relational Archaeologies

    Humans, Animals, Things

  7. European Landscapes of Rock-Art

    Edited by Christopher Chippindale, George Nash

    Rock-art - the ancient images which still scatter the rocky landscapes of Europe - is a singular kind of archaeological evidence.
