Archaeomalacology : Molluscs in former environments of human behaviour, Paperback / softback Book

Archaeomalacology : Molluscs in former environments of human behaviour Paperback / softback

Part of the Proceedings of the 9th ICAZ Conference series

Description

Molluscs are the most common invertebrate remains found at archaeological sites, but archaeomalacology (the study of molluscs in archaeological contexts) is a relatively new archaeological discipline and the field of zooarchaeology is seen by many as one mainly focused on the remains of vertebrates.

The papers in this volume hope to redress this balance, bringing molluscan studies into mainstream zooarchaeological and archaeological debate, and resulting in a monograph with a truly international flavour.
