Geoarchaeology in Action provides much-needed 'hands on'
methodologies to assist anyone conducting or studying
geoarchaeological investigations on sites and in landscapes,
irrespective of date, place and environment. The book sets out the
essential features of geoarchaeological practice and
geomorphological processes, and is deliberately aimed at the
archaeologist as practitioner in the field. It explains the basics
- what can be expected, what approaches may be taken, and what
outcomes might be forthcoming, and asks what we can reasonably

from Britain, Europe and the Near East. They illustrate how past

glossary, bibliography and more than 100 illustrations it will be
an essential text and reference tool for students, academics and
