Archaeological Chemistry, 2nd Edition






Archaeological Chemistry, 2nd Edition by Zvi Goffer






(NOT paper & print book, but an eBook in PDF Format!)










Description


The chemical study of archaeological materials



Archaeological Chemistry, Second Edition is about the application
of the chemical sciences to the study of ancient man and his
material activities. The text of the book centers on the use of
chemical methods, but also refers to the contributions of physics,
biology, and genetics to archaeological research.



Subjects discussed in the book include the determination of the
nature of ancient materials, their provenance and age, the
technologies used for the production of man-made materials, and the
analysis of ancient human and animal remains (such as bone, dried
blood, and coprolites), which yields information on ancient diets,
kinship, habitancy, and migratory patterns.



New developments in analytical chemistry and in related
disciplines, which have contributed to archaeological research
since the first edition of the book was published, are dealt with
in this edition, which also includes:

* Updated information on the study of the nature, age, and provenance
of ancient materials

* New sections on organic, biological and genetic studies

* Glossary

* Extensive bibliography



The book is intended primarily for archaeologists, physical
anthropologists and students of archaeology and physical
anthropology, but will also be of use to conservators, curators,
and art historians. Natural scientists reading it will become
acquainted with advances in archaeological research which were made
possible only by the application of chemical, physical, and
biological methods and techniques.
