The archaeological collection of the Ashmolean is used to illustrate a series of themes about the lives and deaths of people at this time. The archaeological collection of the Ashmolean Museum is used to illustrate a series of themes about the lives and deaths of people at this time, their appearance, clothes and ornaments, their economy and trade, how they produced and consumed their food, and the warfare of the period as shown through weapons. The collection at the Ashmolean owes much to Sir John Evans. The excavations and objects from the important early Iron Age cemetery of Hallstatt, Austria, some of which were excavated by Sir John, are covered in some detail. The text is lavishly supplemented by colour illustrations, particularly of exhibits from the Ashmolean Department of Antiquities. [less]

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 book starts with an introduction to the anatomy, structure and development of bones and teeth. It analyzes the biasing effects of decay an d incomplete recovery on burial data from archaeological sites and discusses what can be learned 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. This textbook for students of archaeology explains current scientific methods - technical jargon kept to a minimum - alongside critical discussion of their strengths and weaknesses. [less]

A fun introduction to theoretical archaeology in the guise of a murder mystery. A European Neolithic burial. A large stone Venus. Nothing unusual about it - except that it was found on an island in the Pacific Northwest. Archaeologist Hannah Green and her nephew find themselves in a tangled web of competing interests--avaricious land owners, hungry media, and a cult of goddess worshippers--while investigating one of the finds of the century. In untangling the mystery of the Washington Venus, Hannah and Sean have to confront questions of archaeological evidence, of ethics, of conflicting interpretation of data, and of the very nature of archaeological truths. Helping them are a cadre of disdainful graduate students who propose various theories--processualist, marxist, feminist, postmodernist--to explain the bizarre events. [less]

These remains provide vital clues to unraveling man's antiquity their position and location, relation to other remains, state of preservation and 'medical' condition all provide important information on ancient man and his living environment. Inferences regarding length of life, nutritional standards, diseases and origin of injuries can all be made in bones that are thousands of years old. However, many of these features are open to interpretation and the information gained is only as good as the records and analysis made at that time. The purpose of this book is to describe the many techniques now available for the proper excavation, preparation and analysis of human skeletal remains, so that the most effective use can be made of them. As such it will prove invaluable to both amateur and professional archaeologists, students of anthropology and anatomy, and the layman who has an interest in this ancestors' modus vivendi. [less]
