Overview

This volume outlines and assesses the various methods used to reconstruct and explain the past interaction between people and their environments. Emphasizing the importance of a highly scientific approach to the subject, the book combines geoarchaeological, bioarchaeological (archeaobotany and zooarchaeology), and geochronological information, and examines how these various aspects of archaeology may be used to enhance our knowledge and understanding of past human environments. Drawing from both the practical experiences of the authors and cutting-edge research, Environmental Archaeology is a valuable contribution to the subject. It will be essential reading for students and professionals in archaeology, geography, and anthropology.
