  • Archaeology and Anthropologyby Duncan Garrow; Thomas Yarrow

    Oxbow Books 2010; US$ 35.00

    This book focuses on the relationship between the disciplines of archaeology and anthropology. Both disciplines arose from a common project: a desire to understand human social and cultural diversity. However, in recent years, archaeologys interest in anthropology has remained largely unreciprocated. To date, the causes and consequences of this imbalance... more...

  • Beyond the Coreby Graeme Kirkham; Andy M. Jones

    Oxbow Books 2011; US$ 40.00

    This volume explores the idea of regionally-based archaeologies across the British Isles which are not necessarily defined by modern political boundaries or through comparisons with regions such as Wessex and Orkney. In the past these intensively studied areas have often been assumed to represent the 'typical' - other areas with apparently... more...

  • Beyond the Dead Horizonby Nicholas J. Saunders

    Oxbow Books 2012; US$ 35.00

    The new interdisciplinary study of modern conflict archaeology has developed rapidly over the last decade.

  • Building for Eternityby C. J. Brandon; R. L. Hohlfelder; M. D. Jackson

    Oxbow Books 2014; US$ 55.00

    One marker of the majesty of ancient Rome is its surviving architectural legacy, the stunning remains of which are scattered throughout the circum-Mediterranean landscape.

  • Calendars and Yearsby John M. Steele

    Oxbow Books 2007; US$ 25.00

    Dates form the backbone of written history. But where do these dates come from? Many different calendars were used in the ancient world.
