    DescriptionThe Archaeology of Garden and Field Edited by Naomi F. Miller and Kathryn L. Gleason "This volume focuses on the archaeology of cultivated land in gardens and fields. However, the techniques and bibliographies it provides have much broader applications and will prove useful to archaeologists who do not consider themselves landscape archaeologists."--American Antiquity "One of the few well-focused source books available on methods for studying plants, people, and the use of cultivated space in the past."--Journal of Field Archaeology "Finally, a comprehensive book that focuses on the newly developing science that interprets archaeological evidence of human utilization of land for agricultural and garden purposes...Fine coverage of basic techniques and integration of recent advances in the field."--Northeastern Naturalist Cultivation and land use practices the world over reflect many aspects of people's relationship to each other and to the natural world. The Archaeology of Garden and Field explores the cultivation of land from prehistoric times to the nineteenth century through excavation, experimentation, and the study of modern cultural traditions. The Archaeology of Garden and Field contains a wealth of information distilled from the combined experiences of the editors and contributors. Whether one's interest is the Old World or the New, prehistory or the present, this book provides a starting point for anyone who has ever wondered how archaeologists find and interpret the ephemeral traces of ancient cultivation. 1994 | 248 pages | 6 x 9 | 77 illus.
