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

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 379 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

Eldorado! : the archaeology of gold mining in the far North( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When gold was discovered in the far northern regions of Alaska and the Yukon in the late 19th century, thousands of individuals headed north to strike it rich. This massive movement required a vast network of supplies and services and brought even more people north to manage and fulfill those needs. In this volume, archaeologists, historians, and ethnologists discuss their interlinking studies of the towns, trails, and mining districts that figured in the northern gold rushes, including the first sustained account of the archaeology of 20th-century gold mining sites in Alaska or the Yukon

Interpreting the early modern world : transatlantic perspectives by Mary Carolyn Beaudry( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although historical archaeologists often explore similar themes, the intellectual traditions in the United States and the United Kingdom lead to differing interpretations of these themes. The contributions to this innovative volume provide a bridge between a US-based archaeologist and a UK-based archaeologist on the themes of landscape studies, urban archaeology, memory and memorialization, gender studies, the lives of industrial workers, and archaeological biographies. The chapters are not meant to stand in isolation, but rather provide a dialog between both groups. This work explores the strengths of interpretive historical archaeology in the US and the UK, as well as compare and contrast differing approaches. It aims to foster debate and productive collaborations between historical archaeologists from different geographic regions. It will of interest to UK and US-based archaeologists, as well as those performing interpretive historical archaeology in other regions who will benefit from the insights it provides
