This textbook offers an integrated approach to geoarchaeolog - the direct use of geologic concepts, methods, and knowledge to solve archaeological problems and interpret archaeological records. This edition begins by considering the history and theory of geoarchaeology. Rapp and Hill then move to discussions of soils and environmental interpretations; initial context and site formation; methods of discovery and spatial analyses; estimating time; paleoenvironments, landscapes, and the human past; identifying, analyzing, and sourcing raw materials; and construction, destruction, and conservation of sites and materials.
