The volume describes methods of identifying parenchymous remains of roots and tubers in archaeological sites as a way of analyzing diet among ancient peoples.
From the Publisher"The excellent illustrations and overview of botanical morphology and anatomy of tissues associated with storage organs make this volume a welcome part of any archaeobotanist's library. I highly recommend the volume as a tool to demonstrate the analytical and interpretive possibilities of studying parenchymous plant storage tissues preserved in archaeological sites." Michael Glascock, Society of Archaeological Sciences Bulletin
