Age determination of young rocks and artifacts : physical and chemical clocks in Quaternary geology and archaeology by Günther A Wagner( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Quaternary, which spans approximately the last 2 million years, is characterized by dramatic environmental changes, commonly known as the 'ice age'. During this period, man with his manifold cultures evolved. Attempts at dating these events as accurately as possible have made great progress. The broad spectrum of physical and chemical dating methods, now available for dating human artifacts and Quaternary rocks, is becoming increasingly difficult to grasp. In this book the various chronometric techniques are comprehensively and intelligibly treated. By means of numerous case studies, taken from archaeology and Quaternary geology, the potential and limitation of these techniques are demonstrated. The book is intended mainly for scientists and students of these fields, but the interested layman may also find its rewarding."--Publisher's description
Troia and the troad : scientific approaches by Günther A Wagner( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When reconstructing the past, the archaeologist needs to take into account all kinds of relevant information. Where no written sources are available, the natural sciences play an indispensable role. Troia is a remarkable site in this respect. The present excavation project at Troia, under the directorship of Manfred Korfmann, integrates various disciplines including geoarchaeology, archaeobotany, zooarchaeology, anthropology, geophysical prospection as well as chemical and technological studies of metal, stone and pottery. Hardly any other archaeological project is supported so intensely and on such a broad scale by archaeometric investigations as the international research group in Troia. In April 2001 an International Symposium was held in Heidelberg, Germany, with the aim of promoting scientific discussion and providing synopses of the various disciplines engaged in Troia. This volume contains most of the contributions presented at the symposium. Due to its broad natural scientific as well as its cultural-historic scope, not only will the specialist but also the interested layman find the book rewarding

Einführung in die Archäometrie( Book )

9 editions published in 2007 in German and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Archäometrie befasst sich mit der Entwicklung und Anwendung naturwissenschaftlicher Methoden und Konzepte zur Lösung archäologischer Fragestellungen. Damit ist sie ein weites Forschungsfeld an der Schnittstelle zwischen Natur- und Geisteswissenschaften. Archäologen, Physiker, Chemiker, Bio- und Geowissenschaftler geben einen Überblick über den heutigen Stand der vielfältigen archäometrischen Ansätze, wobei die einzelnen Beiträge sowohl die Grundlagen behandeln als auch anhand von Fallbeispielen die Anwendungsmöglichkeiten aufzeigen. Die behandelten Themen umfassen Materialanalytik, Datierung, geophysikalische Prospektion, Archäometallurgie, Molekulargenetik, geoarchäologische Umweltrekonstruktion und Kulturentwicklung durch Klimawandel

5 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a systematic look at the utilization of rock and mineral materials from prehistoric times through the 17th century ACE. The coverage is nearly world-wide and gives more than 800 references. Among the numerous illustrations are maps showing the location of major rock, mineral, and ore deposits, as well as photos and drawings of minerals, artifacts, statues, and large structures. Major portions of this book are based on 34 years of experience the author has doing geoarchaeology, archaeomineralogy, and archaeometallurgy in more than a dozen countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America."--Jacket

Luminescence dating in archaeology, anthropology, and geoarchaeology : an overview by Ioannis Liritzis( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The field of Luminescence Dating has reached a level of maturity. Both research and applications from all fields of archaeological science, from archaeological materials to anthropology and geoarchaeology, now routinely employ luminescence dating. The advent of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) techniques and the potential for exploring a spectrum of grain aliquots enhanced the applicability, accuracy and the precision of luminescence dating. The present contribution reviews the physical basis, mechanisms and methodological aspects of luminescence dating; discusses advances in instrumentations and facilities, improvements in analytical procedures, and statistical treatment of data along with some examples of applications across continents, covering all periods (Middle Palaeolithic to Medieval) and both Old and New World archaeology. They also include interdisciplinary applications that contribute to palaeo-landscape reconstruction
