Unlocking the past : celebrating historical archaeology in North America( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Leading the reader to archaeological sites from Canada to the Caribbean and through time from the era of early Norse voyages to World War II, this book describes compelling discoveries unearthed by archaeologists in search of North America's historical past. The essays challenge our ideas about the continent as they reveal how native and immigrant peoples interacted with their environment and each other over the course of five centuries." "The rich diversity of historical archaeology is explored in the work of more than thirty archaeological teams. The authors explain how they dissect soils, recover fragile objects, document each element of excavation, and piece together the many fragments of evidence from archives, libraries, and laboratories."--Jacket

Ships' graveyards : abandoned watercraft and the archaeological site formation process by Nathan Richards( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nathan Richards seeks to discover what we can learn by examining intentionally abandoned vessels and to determine what the differences are between cultural site formation processes and those created "naturally" (that is, by shipwrecks and other nautical disasters). Using Australian waters as a case study, Richards examines over 1,500 vessels abandoned over a period of more than 200 years. --from publisher description

Mining archaeology in the American West : a view from the Silver State by Donald L Hardesty( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mining played a prominent role in the shaping and settling of the American West in the nineteenth century. Following the discovery of the famous Comstock Lode in Nevada in 1859, mining became increasingly industrialized, changing mining technology, society, and culture throughout the world. In the wake of these changes, Nevada became an important mining region, with new people and technologies further altering the ways mining was pursued and miners interacted
Eldorado! : the archaeology of gold mining in the far North by Catherine Holder Spude( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors explore various parts of this extensive settlement and supply system: coastal towns that funneled goods inland from ships; the famous Chilkoot Trail, over which tens of thousands of gold-seekers trod; a host of retail-oriented sites that supported prospectors and transferred goods through the system; and actual camps on the creeks where gold was extracted from the ground. Discussing individual cases in terms of settlement patterns and archaeological assemblages, the essays shed light on issues of interest to students of gender, transience, and site abandonment behavior. Further commentary places the archaeology of the Far North within the larger context of early 20th-century industrialized European American society
