From the Publisher"Suitable for graduate libraries."
"Twenty-four articles in two volumes on the archaeology and significance of battlefield research are ground truthing the written record of particular battles. Introductory articles define battlefield archaeology and its methodology, theoretical basis, and focus on the landscape….These articles not only enhance the documentary record, but also provide significant new data on the battles' ebb and flow and tactics that do not exist in the written record, thus reinterpreting, in many cases, the course of the action. Recommended. All levels/libraries."
"The editors…explore the ways in which battlefield archaeology clarifies our understanding of military tactics and strategy as they have evolved over the last 2,000 years. In two volumes, they not only reveal new interpretations of classic battles, but show clearly how achaeology can be used regardless of geographic or temporal location, making this an ideal set for the general reader and professional archaeologist or soldier alike."
