The environment and aggregate-related archaeology

Brown, Tony (2009) The environment and aggregate-related archaeology, Oxford, Heritage Publications, an imprint of Oxbow Books, 232pp.

Record type: Book


This volume provides a synthetic review of the background and archaeology that has emerged through archaeological interventions associated with the quarrying of sand, gravel, and rock for aggregates. The book covers all periods from the Lower Palaeolithic to Medieval, and is organized on a regional basis. The review, which also contains as yet unpublished data, shows how the variety and preservation of archaeology can greatly expand our understanding of the relationships of humans to their changing environments.
