  • Past Mobilitiesby Jim Leary

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2014; US$ 109.95

    The new mobilities paradigm has yet to have the same impact on archaeology as it has in other disciplines in the social sciences - on geography, sociology and anthropology in particular - yet mobility is fundamental to archaeology: all people move. Moving away from archaeology’s traditional focus upon place or location, this volume treats mobility... more...

  • Counterheritageby Denis Byrne

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    The claim that heritage practice in Asia is Eurocentric may be well-founded, but the view that local people in Asia need to be educated by heritage practitioners and governments to properly conserve their heritage distracts from the responsibility of educating oneself about the local-popular beliefs and practices which constitute the bedrock of most... 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...

  • From Prehistoric Villages to Citiesby Jennifer Birch

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 125.00

    Archaeologists have focused a great deal of attention on explaining the evolution of village societies and the transition to a ?Neolithic? way of life. Considerable interest has also concentrated on urbanism and the rise of the earliest cities. Between these two landmarks in human cultural development lies a critical stage in social and political... more...

    Left Coast Press 2014; US$ 94.00

    This pragmatic guide to consultation in cultural heritage and environmental impact management distills decades of experience by two of the leading figures in this area. Claudia Nissley and Tom King reject the idea that consulting with communities and other stakeholders is merely checking off a box on the list of tasks required to implement a project.... more...

  • 1177 B.C.by Eric H. Cline

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    In 1177 B.C., marauding groups known only as the ?Sea Peoples? invaded Egypt. The pharaoh?s army and navy managed to defeat them, but the victory so weakened Egypt that it soon slid into decline, as did most of the surrounding civilizations. After centuries of brilliance, the civilized world of the Bronze Age came to an abrupt and cataclysmic end.... more...

  • The Past in Prehistoric Societiesby Richard Bradley

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 41.95

    The idea of prehistory dates from the nineteenth century, but Richard Bradley contends that it is still a vital area for research. He argues that it is only through a combination of oral tradition and the experience of encountering ancient material culture that people were able to formulate a sense of their own pasts without written records. The Past... more...

It also provides a statement showing how geoarchaeology should be conducted in a wide range of locations throughout Australia. One of the key difficulties... more...
