Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The chapters are exceptionally well written and thought provoking, and the editors have crafted a cohesive work suitable for students and professionals alike with minimal jargon. ... By taking theory into practice and offering concrete examples, this book distinguishes itself in the literature. ... With this volume, Shackel and Chambers have done nothing less than take the application of archeology as applied anthropology and ratchet it up to a productive new level. Heritage professionals and academics teaching graduate courses will find this volume a welcome and valuable resource.' – Marco Meniketti, Industrial Archeology
