"The textbook "Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology" deserves special consideration...with its scientific contents and high standard printing art is a significant step in the development of a new branch - ecological archaeology."
T. F. Urushadze, Annals of Agrarian Science, December 2012
"There is a new exceptionally good geoarchaeology text - it is written for you. It tells you what a soil is, what a sediment is, is easy to read well illustrated and designed for the field archaeologist and not just the environmental and soil scientist. It gives practical information and general information (and includes lab methods etc) and in my opinion it isthe best textbook on the subject going and is suitable for all archaeologists."
Dr Michael J Allen, Environmental Manager, Wessex Archaeology and Reviews Editor, The Prehistoric Society
"The authors of this book do a fantastic job explaining complex ideas, frequently using key sites to show how geoarchaeology was critical in understanding the full story of a site’s archaeology."

"Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology provides a comprehensive introduction to an increasingly important sub-discipline of archaeology ... ideal as both a comprehensive introduction to the subject and as a reference."

“This is an excellent textbook, and it will be a resource for all archaeologists who want to integrate geoarchaeology into their research.”
