Historical Archaeology: Back from the Edge

Front Cover
Pedro Paulo A. Funari, Martin Hall, Siān Jones
Routledge, 1999 - Social Science - 350 pages
Historical Archaeology demonstrates the potential of adopting a flexible, encompassing definition of historical archaeology which involves the study of all societies with documentary evidence. It encourages research that goes beyond the boundaries between prehistory and history.
Ranging in subject matter from Roman Britain and Classical Greece, to colonial Africa, Brazil and the United States, the contributors present a much broader range of perspectives than is currently the trend.
