    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.

  • Excavating Memoryby Maria Theresia Starzmann; John R. Roby

    University Press of Florida 2016; US$ 100.00

  • Frozen in Timeby John Geiger; Owen Beattie

    Bloomsbury Publishing 2012; US$ 11.99

    The Franklin expedition was not alone in suffering early and unexplained deaths. Indeed, both Back (1837) and Ross (1849) suffered early onset of unaccountable "debility" aboard ship and Ross suffered greater fatalities during his single winter in the Arctic than did Franklin during his first. Both expeditions were forced to retreat because... more...

  • The Great Maya Droughts in Cultural Contextby Gyles Iannone

    University Press of Colorado 2013; US$ 60.00

    In The Great Maya Droughts in Cultural Context , contributors reject the popularized link between societal collapse and drought in Maya civilization, arguing that a series of periodic ?collapses,? including the infamous Terminal Classic collapse (AD 750?1050), were not caused solely by climate change?related droughts but by a combination of other... more...
