  • Science-Based Dating in Archaeologyby M. J . Aitken

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 77.95

    University of Chicago Press 2008; US$ 16.00

    Taking advantage of recent advances throughout the sciences, Matthew Hedman brings the distant past closer to us than it has ever been.

Hedman details,... more...

  • Tree-ring Dating and Archaeologyby M.G.L. Baillie

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 115.00

    The analysis of tree-ring patterns, or dendrochronology, is a very exact science and an important dating technique. The basis of the method is misleadingly simple: that overlap of successive older ring patterns can generate a master chronology and samples of unknown age can then be checked against this. This book, published originally in 1982, traces... more...

  • Models in Archaeologyby David L. Clarke

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 250.00
