This volume contains case studies in environmental archaeology that apply data obtained from various disciplines-including zooarchaeology, archaeobotany, human biology, and geoarchaeology-to explore important anthropological issues. Studies include geological and biological data from sites located in North America, the Caribbean basin, and South America. Rather than critiquing or advocating specific environmental techniques, each study demonstrates how and why the information obtained from their use is important to anthropologists and archaeologists.

Editorial Reviews

Filling the gap left by the European and methodological bias of most texts on environmental archaeology, examines sites in North and South America and the Caribbean and demonstrates how the discipline can address significant anthropological issues. Some of those issues are the systematic relationship between human and their physical and biological environment, human behaviors associated with acquiring food and other resources, strategies for accommodating seasonality, and the emergence of social complexity. Of interest to both students and professionals. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
