From the practices of historic period Native American groups to elite mausoleums, and from almshouse mass graves to the rise in popularity of green burials today, The Archaeology of Cemeteries and Gravemarkers provides an overview of the many facets of this fascinating topic.
The American Experience in Archaeological PerspectiveEdited by Michael S. Nassaney, Professor oF ANTHROPOLOGY
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.
