The 10 papers here provide a stimulating snapshot of current knowledge and research directions. Particularly refreshing is the forward-looking embrace of inter-disciplinarity, with scientific dating, biocultural approaches and historical scholarship all brought to bear on the archaeology.'

Crusader Archaeology: The Material Culture of the Latin East
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415173612 | edition 1999 | PDF | 262 pages | 14,3 MB

Crusader Archaeology draws together recently excavated material culture in Israel, Cyprus, Syria and Jordan to examine what life was like for the Crusaders in their territory and how they were influenced by their newfound neighbors. Chapters discuss urban and rural settlements, surveying agriculture, industry, military, church, public and private architecture, arts and crafts, leisure pursuits, death and burial, and building techniques. This lavishly illustrated volume creates a vivid portrait of the period.

Three of the four musicians who had created the soundtrack for the Rutles 1978 TV movie and album (Neil Innes, John Halsey and Ricky Fataar) reunited in 1996 and recorded a second album, "Archaeology," a send-up of "The Beatles Anthology" albums. The fourth 'real' Rutle, Ollie Halsall, died in Spain of a heroin overdose in 1992. Eric Idle was invited to participate, but declined. Like the "Anthology" project that it lampooned, it featured tracks ostensibly from all periods of the Rutles career, sequenced to reflect the fictional band's chronology. Includes the UK CD single "Shangri-La" with two bonus tracks.

The Archaeology of Human Bones

The Archaeology of Human Bones
Publisher: Routledge | ISBN: 0415166217 | edition 1998 | PDF | 257 pages | 10,6 mb

There is no greater direct evidence regarding earlier human populations than their physical remains. This volume provides a pragmatic and up-to-date account of forensic analysis of human skeletal remains, and its application in tackling major historical and archaeological issues. The Archaeology of Human Bones starts with an introduction to the anatomy, structure and development of bones and teeth. It analyzes the biasing effects of decay and incomplete recovery on burial data from archaeological sites, and discusses what we may learn about ancient burial rituals from human remains. Subsequent chapters focus on the demographic analysis of ancient populations, normal skeletal variation, ancient disease and injury, the chemical analysis of bone, the study of DNA, and the study of cremated remains. Examples are brought from archaeological studies around the world.
