In this book, John Franzen surveys archaeological studies of logging sites across the nation from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, explaining how material evidence found at these locations illustrates key aspects of the American experience during this era.
The American Experience in Archaeological PerspectiveEdited by Michael S. Nassaney; and Krysta Ryzewski, Wayne Sate University
The University Press of Florida is proud to announce a new series in historical archaeology that focuses attention on a range of significant themes in the development of the modern world from an Americanist perspective. Each volume will explore an event, process, setting, or institution that played a formative role in the making of America. These comprehensive overviews underscore the theoretical, methodological, and substantive contributions that archaeology has made to the study of American history and culture. While these studies focus on historical archaeology in America, they will also have broader application to historical and anthropological inquiries in other parts of the world.
