Description

This book documents and assesses over ten years of research in the field, bringing together expertise and knowledge from the disciplines of archaeology and geomorphology, and highlighting important recent advances, discoveries and new directions. Reflecting the wide scope of current research in this area, the book contains over twenty papers focusing on various aspects of alluvial archaeology from the methodology of dating, prospecting, excavating etc, to previously under-analysed geographical areas such as intertidal wetlands.

Reviews

'Alluvial Archaeology in Europe is a well-produced book and its contents are heartily recommended to geoarchaeologists, fluvial geomorphologists, environmental scientists and resource managers at both student and professional level. Each paper is excellent and stands alone as a valuable contribution to the literature.' The Holocene (2004)
