The lengthy subtitle aptly describes the content of this volume as an 'Analysis of the morphology, manufacture and use of selected categories of domestic wooden artefacts with particular reference to the material from Roman Britain'. Paola Pugsley presents an in-depth analysis of a limited assemblage of domestic wooden material from Britain, and comparative objects from Europe, discussing issues and problems of preservation, deposition and interpretation. Among the objects considered are combs and other grooming accessories, wood-soled footwear, boxes, tableware and kitchen equipment, supplemented by evidence from literary sources, iconography and an experimental study that focused on technological aspects. Pugsley concludes that many of the objects had important social as well as utilitarian functions and that the Roman period was a time of innovation which led to significant developments in technology and design. English text; abstracts in French, Italian and German.

This book is an introduction to the study of artefacts, setting them in a social context rather than using a purely scientific approach. Drawing on a range of different cultures and extensively illustrated, Archaeological Artefacts and Material Culture covers everything from recovery strategies and recording procedures to interpretation through typology, ethnography and experiment, and every type of material including wood, fibers, bones, hides and adhesives, stone, clay, and metals. With over seventy illustrations with almost fifty in full colour, this book not only provides the tools an archaeologist will need to interpret past societies from their artefacts, but also a keen appreciation of the beauty and tactility involved in working with these fascinating objects. This is a book no archaeologist should be without, but it will also appeal to anybody interested in the interaction between people and objects.

The Oxford Handbook of Wetland Archaeology is the most comprehensive survey of global wetland archaeology ever published. Well known for the spectacular quality of its surviving evidence, from both an archaeological and environmental perspective, wetland archaeology enables scholars to investigate and reconstruct past people's dwellings, landscapes, material culture, and daily lives in great detail. Through concise essays written by some of the world's leading scholars in the field, this Handbook describes the key principles, methodologies, and revealing results of past and present archaeological investigations of wetland environments. The volume provides unique insights into past human interactions with lakes, bogs, rivers, and coastal marshlands across the world from prehistory to modern times. Opening with a detailed introduction by the editors, the Handbook is divided into seven parts and contains 54 essays and over 230 photographs, figures, maps, and graphs.

Iron Age Artefacts in Wales

This Investigation into the material culture of south-east Wales during the Pre-Roman Iron Age collates artefacts from chance finds, hoards and excavations to challenge the picture of Wales during this period as impoverished and a relatively unsophisticated backwater. Lists of items from the counties of Gwent and Glamorgan feature a large number of metal objects such as weapons, tools, coins and items of personal adornment, a fact which undoubtedly reflects the industriousness of metal-detectorists in the area. Although Martin does not claim that this is necessarily representative of Wales as a whole during the Iron Age, it does suggest that the evidence is there waiting to be revealed.
