  • The Routledge Handbook of the Bioarchaeology of Human Conflictby Christopher Knüsel; Martin Smith

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 225.00

    If human burials were our only window onto the past, what story would they tell? Skeletal injuries constitute the most direct and unambiguous evidence for violence in the past. Whereas weapons or defenses may simply be statements of prestige or status and written sources are characteristically biased and incomplete, human remains offer clear and unequivocal... more...

  • Relational Archaeologiesby Christopher Watts

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 39.95

    Many of us accept as uncontroversial the belief that the world is comprised of detached and disparate products, all of which are reducible to certain substances. Of those things that are alive, we acknowledge that some have agency while others, such as humans, have more advanced qualities such as consciousness, reason and intentionality. So deeply-seated... more...

  • Re-Presenting the Pastby Sheila Bonde; Stephen Houston

    Oxbow Books 2013; US$ 12.50

    The archaeological past exists for us through intermediaries. Some are written works, descriptions, narratives and field notes, while others are visual: the drawings, paintings, photographs, powerpoints or computer visualizations that allow us to re-present past forms of human existence. This volume brings together nine papers, six of which were presented... more...

  • From These Bare Bonesby Alice Choyke; Sonia O'Connor

    Oxbow Books 2013; US$ 37.50

    A fundamental component of the study of worked osseous objects is the identification of the raw materials chosen to make them. In archaeological contexts many objects become degraded to the point where identification is very difficult and the way in which these materials decay during burial and upon excavation can vary greatly. Correct identification... more...
