Description du produit

Revue de presse

"The textbook "Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology" deserves special consideration...with its scientific contents and high standard printing art is a significant step in the development of a new branch – ecological archaeology."
T. F. Urushadze, Annals of Agrarian Science, December 2012

"There is a new exceptionally good geoarchaeology text – it is written for you. It tells you what a soil is, what a sediment is, is easy to read well illustrated and designed for the field archaeologist and not just the environmental and soil scientist. It gives practical information and general information (and includes lab methods etc) and in my opinion it is the best textbook on the subject going and is suitable for all archaeologists."
Dr Michael J Allen, Environmental Manager, Wessex Archaeology and Reviews Editor, The Prehistoric Society

"The authors of this book do a fantastic job explaining complex ideas, frequently using key sites to show how geoarchaeology was critical in understanding the full story of a site s archaeology."
Dirtbrothers.org, June 2006

"Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology gives a thorough introduction to the discipline, allowing the reader to gain a broad understanding of its possible applications ... A good basis for undergraduate and masters students approaching geoarchaelology."
Archaeological Review from Cambridge

"Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology provides a comprehensive introduction to an increasingly important sub–discipline of archaeology ... ideal as both a comprehensive introduction to the subject and as a reference."
Canadian Journal of Archaeology

This is an excellent textbook, and it will be a resource for all archaeologists who want to integrate geoarchaeology into their research.
Journal of Geology

"An invigorating and important book that offers new insights An excellent collection that aims to position the sociology of work at the heart of the discipline." Geomorphology

Présentation de l'éditeur

Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology provides an invaluable overview of geoarchaeology and how it can be used effectively in the study of archaeological sites and contexts. Taking a pragmatic and functional approach, this book presents: a fundamental, broad–based perspective of the essentials of modern geoarchaeology in order to demonstrate the breadth of the approaches and the depth of the problems that it can tackle. the rapid advances made in the area in recent years, but also gives the reader a firm grasp of conventional approaches. covers traditional topics with the emphasis on landscapes, as well as anthropogenic site formation processes and their investigation. provides guidelines for the presentation of field and laboratory methods and the reporting of geoarchaeological results. essential reading for archaeology undergraduate and graduate students, practicing archaeologists and geoscientists who need to understand and apply geoarchaeological methodologies. Artwork from the book is available to instructors online at: www.blackwellpublishing.com/goldberg This is one of the best textbooks that I have read in years. I enjoyed reviewing it, and found it well–written and thorough in its coverage of the traditional earth science aspects of geoarchaeology. The non–traditional aspects were intriguing and equally thorough... I predict that this book will become the textbook of choice for geoarchaeology classes for several years. Geomorphology 101 (2008) 740 743

5.0 étoiles sur 5 One of the Best Geoarchaeology Synthesis Book out there! 1 mars 2006
Par PABP - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
There have been some general and introductory Geoarchaeology books publisged in the past, but this is one of the best so far.

This is an comprehensive review of the subject, touching many the fundamental topics of modern research in Geoarchaeology and complete with detailed case studies. The book overviews some of the major types of research and focuses on what type of aproaches can be made to resolve certain specific problems, all the time contextualizing those in the broader scope of the dig/research site. The book is filled with case studies and examples of real geoarchaeology research, with emphasis on the "why" and "how" things were made. One of the best things is that there is a part of the book dedicated to field and laboratory techniques, focusing on "why" and "how" can those techniques be used in various contexts. Another good thing is that the authors provide guidelines to produce geoarchaeologic reports and how to make the info gathered by geoscientists most usable by archaeologists.

book relies heavily on landscapes, sediments, soils, stratigraphy, soil chemistry and especially soil micromorphology; it also is excelent due to coverage of field and laboratory methods.

Although this focus is excelent (the book covers these topics extensively) it lets out a lot of other topics; for example, environmental studies in a archaeological context are left out (the authors consider it a separate field of study done by a separate team), and so are Archaeometric studies which the authors also consider to be out of the field of Geoarchaeology (they dedicate a chapter to some archaeometric studies, but the coverage is not only incomplete but the information is also very sparse). On the other hand, the book "Geoarchaeology: The Earth-Science Approach to Archaeological Interpretation, Second Edition" (by Rapp and Hill), although beying relatively brief in coverage of the multiple topics, does cover everything that the geosciences can contribute to Archaeology, from the same topics covered by Goldberg & Macphail's book, to environmental studies and Archaeometry (like, for example, provenance studies involving trace-element patterns and stable isotopes, etc). Rapp's book is by far the most complete in terms of coverage (especially this second edition) but it is also the most brief and succint; Goldberg&Macphail's book does not cover all the ground Rapp's book covers and leaves a lot out, but on the other side it its coverage of the featured topics is much more comprehensive.

All in all, an excellent book, but grab Rapp's too.
