Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover While archaeologists, researchers, and students generally know the meanings and terms used for artifacts within their own areas of study, it is difficult to find authoritative definitions for those from periods or cultures outside of their expertise. Containing close to 3,000 words and definitions, the Dictionary of Artifacts is an indispensable reference for anyone working within the field of archaeology. Written in accessible language, each entry details the specific artifact's classification and typology; raw materials; methods and techniques used to create artifacts; principles and techniques of examination and identification; and instructions for the care and preservation of specimens. Along with a headword and definition, many of the entries are accompanied by drawings or photographs.
