Full Description

This book provides examples of analytical methods in a variety of archaeological materials. It presents analytical techniques that incur no visible destruction of the artifact under examination. Using patterns in the analytical data derived from a wide variety of analytical methods, different components of past human behaviour are inferred, including diet, technology of manufacture, source of raw materials, trade routes, and determination of age.
