Practical and Theoretical Geoarchaeology provides an invaluable overview of geoarchaeology and how it can be used effectively in the study of archaeological sites and contexts. Taking a pragmatic and functional approach, this book presents:

  • a fundamental, broad-based perspective of the essentials of modern geoarchaeology in order to demonstrate the breadth of the approaches and the depth of the problems that it can tackle.
  • the rapid advances made in the area in recent years, but also gives the reader a firm grasp of conventional approaches.
  • covers traditional topics with the emphasis on landscapes, as well as anthropogenic site formation processes and their investigation.
  • provides guidelines for the presentation of field and laboratory methods and the reporting of geoarchaeological results.
  • essential reading for archaeology undergraduate and graduate students, practicing archaeologists and geoscientists who need to understand and apply geoarchaeological methodologies.
