Food and Drink in Archaeology 4

Wendy Howard, Kirsten Bedigan, Ben Jervis 

Paperback, 176 pp. illustrated in b/w. Prospect Books 2015

The papers given at this conference range over many historic and prehistoric periods as well as regions. Great strides have been made in recent decades in the various forms of botanical and physical analysis of archaeological finds which have enabled students to gain greater insight into diet and cooking technologies than was possible when all they had to go on was the survival of artefacts. These papers emanate from the cutting edge of archaeological research, among postgraduates and young lecturers from here and overseas.
