`This marvellous volume details the latest advances in the analysis and interpretation of archaeobotanical remains from tropical areas. ... a wealth of useful information on the various kinds of plant materials that the archaeologist may retrieve from tropical sites ... Hather and his authors are to be congratulated for laying the basis for a potentially powerful interdisciplinary approach to the problem of agricultural origins.' - Antiquity
