    Smithsonian 2013; US$ 99.95

    Invented about 13,000 years ago, mud architecture has since been one of the most common, economical, useful, and widespread forms of building.

  • The Cultural Life of Imagesby Brian Leigh Molyneaux

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Pictures are often admired for their aesthetic merits but they are rarely treated as if they had as much to offer as the written word. They are often overlooked as objects of analysis themselves, and tend to be seen simply as adjuncts to the text. Images, however, are not passive, and have a direct impact that engages attention in ways independent... more...

  • Time, Process and Structured Transformation in Archaeologyby James McGlade; Sander E. van der Leeuw

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    In a discipline which essentially studies how modern man came to be, it is remarkable that there are hardly any conceptual tools to describe change. This is due to the history of the western intellectual and scientific tradition, which for a long time favoured mechanics over dynamics, and the study of stability over that of change. Change was primarily... more...

  • Everyday Life Mattersby Cynthia Robin

    University Press of Florida 2013; US$ 74.95

    While the study of ancient civilizations has often focused on holy temples and royal tombs, a substantial part of the archaeological record remains hidden in the understudied day-to-day lives of artisans, farmers, hunters, and other ordinary people of the ancient world. The various chores of a person's daily life can be quite extraordinary and, even... more...

  • The Sea-Craft of Prehistoryby Paul Johnstone

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 52.95

    The nautical dimension of prehistory has not so far received the attention it deserves. It is also too often assumed that early man was land bound, yet this is demonstrably not the case. Recent research has shown that man travelled and tracked over greater distances and at a much earlier date than has previously been thought possible. Some of these... more...
