  • An Animate Landscapeby Andrew Meirion Jones; Blaze O'Connor; Davina Freedman

    Oxbow Books 2011; US$ 38.00

    The Kilmartin landscape in western Scotland is widely regarded as Scotland's richest prehistoric landscape. It contains a number of barrow cemeteries, stone alignments, stone circles and a henge.

  • Appendicesby Luc W. S. W. Amkreutz

    Sidestone Press 2013; US$ 38.00

    The adoption of agriculture is one of the major developments in human history. Archaeological studies have demonstrated that the trajectories of Neolithisation in Northwest Europe were diverse. This book presents a study into the archaeology of the communities involved in the process of Neolithisation in the Lower Rhine Area (5500-2500 cal BC). It... more...

  • The Archaeology of Bronze Age Iberiaby Gonzalo Aranda Jimenez; Sandra Montón Subías; Margarita Sánchez Romero

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 54.95

    After more than a century of research, an enormous body of scientific literature in the field of El Argar studies has been generated, comprising some 700 bibliographic items. No fully-updated synthesis of the literature is available at the moment; recent works deal only with specific characteristics of Argaric societies or some of the regions where... more...

  • Archaeology of Foodby Karen Bescherer Metheny; Mary C. Beaudry

  • An Archaeology of Materialsby Chantal Conneller

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    An Archaeology of Materials sets out a new approach to the study of raw materials. Traditional understandings of materials in archaeology (and in western thought more widely) have failed to acknowledge both the complexity and, moreover, the benefits of an analysis of materials. Here Conneller argues that materials cannot be understood independently... more...

  • The Atlantic Iron Ageby Jon Henderson

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 54.95

    It may be surprising to learn that this book is the first ever survey of the Atlantic Iron Age: this tradition is cited in archaeology frequently enough to seem firmly established, yet has never been clearly defined.With this book, Jon Henderson provides an important and much-needed exploration of the archaeology of western areas of Britain, Ireland,... more...

  • Beacons in the Landscapeby Ian Brown

    Windgather Press 2009; US$ 25.00

    Of all Britain's great archaeological monuments the Iron Age hillforts have arguably had the most profound impact on the landscape, if only because there are so many; yet we know very little about them. Were they recognised as being something special by those who created them or is the 'hillfort' purely an archaeologists' 'construct'?... more...

  • Bene Israelby Alexander Fantalkin

    BRILL 2008; US$ 132.00

    This collection of twelve papers, dedicated to Professor Israel Finkelstein, deals with various aspects concerning the archaeology of Israel and the Levant during the Bronze and Iron Ages. Although the area under discussion runs from southeastern Turkey (Alalakh) down to the arid zones of the Negev Desert, the main emphasis is on the Land of Israel.... more...

  • Beyond Barrowsby David Fontijn; Arjan J. Louwen; Sasja van der Vaart

    Sidestone Press 2013; US$ 42.00

    Europe is dotted with tens of thousands of prehistoric barrows. In spite of their ubiquity, little is known on the role they had in pre- and protohistoric landscapes. In 2010, an international group of archaeologists came together at the conference of the European Association of Archaeologists in The Hague to discuss and review current research on... more...

  • Beyond the Fertile Crescentby Andrew Garrard; Brian Byrd

    Oxbow Books 2013; US$ 45.00

    The natural arc of resource-rich land which forms the ‘Fertile Crescent’ of South-West Asia is regarded as the earliest centre of village-based farming in the world and has been the focus of much of our understanding of the transition from Epipalaeolithic hunter-gathers to Neolithic farmers. Beyond the Fertile Crescent is the first volume... more...
