Williams: Prehistoric Belief: Shamans, Trance and the Afterlife. Paperback

!
  • Prehistoric Belief: Shamans, Trance and the Afterlife
  • Mike Williams 2010
  • Paperback, 320 pages, ill, 248 x 172 mm
  • In this bold and groundbreaking book, Dr Williams tackles all the big subjects in archaeology: the spread of humans from Africa, the rise of social groups, the adoption of agriculture, the construction of monuments, the emergence of metal, and the fall of the Celtic tribes. Showing that belief was central to these epic changes, as well as influencing the most mundane, everyday task, a new understanding of our prehistoric past emerges. Whilst being extensively researched, a fast-paced and engaging narrative makes this a page-turning read.

Weiner: Microarchaeology : Beyond the Visible Archaeological Record. Paperback

!
  • Microarchaeology: Beyond the Visible Archaeological Record
  • Stephen Weiner 2010
  • 414 pages, 96 b/w illus. 253 x 215 mm. The archaeological record is a combination of what is seen by eye, as well as the microscopic record revealed with the help of instrumentation. The information embedded in the microscopic record can significantly add to our understanding of past human behaviour, provided this information has not been altered by the passage of time. Microarchaeology seeks to understand the microscopic record in terms of the type of information embedded in this record, the materials in which this information resides, and the conditions under which a reliable signal can be extracted. This book highlights the concepts needed to extract information from the microscopic record. Intended for all archaeologists and archaeological scientists, it will be of particular interest to students who have some background in the natural sciences as well as archaeology.
