Industrial Archaeology

Industrial Archaeology introduces the origins and development of the discipline in its international context. The first two chapters consider industrial landscapes and buildings as the visible symbols of the processes of production in both space and time. Landscapes are analysed such as the linear landscapes created by rivers, canals and railways as well as buildings, in terms of function, typology and context, both topographical and cultural. The authors evaluate the techniques of field survey and documentary research, finally considering the problems and potential of the cultural resource management of the industrial heritage.

Archaeology Under Fire

The Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean are one of the most politically charged regions in which archaeology is implicated. Historically, they played a formative role in the birth of archaeology as a discipline.Archaeology Under Fireaddresses archaeology's role in current political issues, as in the ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, the division of Cyprus, or the continued destruction of Beirut. The contributors consider the positive role of the past, as a means of reconciliation, whether it be in Turkey, Israel, or the Gulf. They advocate a responsible global archaeology and awareness of contemporary issues can only enhance this aim.

Over the last twenty-five years archaeology has revolutionised our knowledge of the early history of British towns. Based on his day-to-day involvement in urban archaeology, Patrick Ottaway reviews the important discoveries and research themes of this period, and considers how long-term urban research projects have revealed new information about towns and the lives of their inhabitants. The work of the urban archaeologist is examined in close detail, and attention is given to the critical problems of preserving our urban past, especially when the interests of archaeology and property development clash.

The Archaeology of Ethnicity

Indigenous and nationalist claims to territory often rely on reconstructions of the past based on the identification of cultures from archaeological remains, in spite of the fact that many consider the association of remains with past ethnic groups to be hopelessly inadequate.

The contributors in this book use the most recent research in key areas - the early settlements of Israel, early Israelite religion, Qumran, Jerusalem, early Christian churches - to show that ancient writings and modern archaeology can illuminate each other, but only when used with professional care. The essays represent a new generation of archaeologists and historians, with new social, political and religious concerns who draw a fresh and vital picture of the emergence of ancient Israel.
