Excerpt from The Archeological History of New York, Vol. 1 Today most collectors are better informed, and the cultural remains of the race that formerly occupied this continent, are careful pre served, cataloged and labeled. Science has taken the lead and asks for facts. Today-the pottery pipe and engraved gorget, and even the humble arrowhead are regarded as archeological specimens. Definite scientific problems have arisen and challenge us to solve them. Every artifact left in the soil by the vanished red men may be of importance, if the associated facts are properly recorded. The position of a banner stone in a grave may unlock some secret; the presence of pottery 'even in the form of fragments may shed important light upon a knotty problem in archeology. A conscientious collector observes and records everything for he knows that a care less collector is a destroying vandal who merely confuses himself and others, and ruins the field of inquiry for the better informed.

The most complete account of ancient man in the New York area ever published in one volume, this book traces a rich, 8000-year story of human prehistory. Beginning with the first known inhabitants, Paleo-Indian hunters who lived approximately 7000 B.C., the author gives a detailed chronological account of the complex of cultural units that have existed in the area, culminating in the Iroquois tribes encountered by the European colonists at the dawn of the seventeenth century. All of the major archaeological sites in the region are described in detail and representative artifacts from all the major cultural units are illustrated in over 100 plates and drawings. The entire account is informed by the most recently obtained radio-carbon dates. In addition to giving much new, previously unpublished information, the author has synthesized all earlier published material and from this he has drawn as many inferences as the material affords regarding the nature of these early inhabitants, where they came from, and how they lived. Each cultural unit is systematically described: its discovery and naming; its ecological and chronological setting; the physical characteristics of the related people; economy; housing and settlement pattern; dress and ornament; technology; transportation; trade relationships; warfare; esthetic and recreational activities; social and political organization; mortuary customs; and religio-magical and ceremonial customs.

Historical Archaeology of New York City is a collection of narratives about people who lived in New York City during the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries, people whose lives archaeologists have encountered during excavations at sites where these people lived or worked. The stories are ethnohistorical or microhistorical studies created using archaeological and documentary data. As microhistories, they are concerned with particular people living at particular times in the past within the framework of world events. The world events framework will be provided in short introductions to chapters grouped by time periods and themes. The foreword by Mary Beaudry and the afterword by LuAnne DeCunzo bookend the individual case studies and add theoretical weight to the volume. Historical Archaeology of New York City focuses on specific individual life stories, or stories of groups of people, as a way to present archaeological theory and research. Archaeologists work with material culture—artifacts—to recreate daily lives and study how culture works; this book is an example of how to do this in a way that can attract people interested in history as well as in anthropological theory.

This short account of the discipline of archaeology tells of spectacular discoveries and the colorful lives of the archaeologists who made them, as well as of changing theories and current debates in the field. Spanning over two thousand years of history, the book details early digs as well as covering the development of archaeology as a multidisciplinary science, the modernization of meticulous excavation methods during the twentieth century, and the important discoveries that led to new ideas about the evolution of human societies. A Brief History of Archaeology is a vivid narrative that will engage readers who are new to the discipline, drawing on the authors’ extensive experience in the field and classroom. Early research at Stonehenge in Britain, burial mound excavations, and the exploration of Herculaneum and Pompeii culminate in the nineteenth century debates over human antiquity and the theory of evolution. The book then moves on to the discovery of the world’s pre-industrial civilizations in Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Central America, the excavations at Troy and Mycenae, the Royal Burials at Ur, Iraq, and the dramatic finding of the pharaoh Tutankhamun in 1922. The book concludes by considering recent sensational discoveries, such as the Lords of Sipán in Peru, and exploring the debates over processual and postprocessual theory which have intrigued archaeologists in the early 21st century. The second edition updates this respected introduction to one of the sciences’ most fascinating disciplines.

Excerpt from A Picturesque History of Yorkshire, Vol. 1 But there were gorgeous and picturesque shows on the Humber for centuries after that, in the times when English ships were quaint of design and awkward of movement, or when Hull sent out its fleet in response to Elizabeth's demand for ships and men, or when the whaling-boats set out for the Arctic regions, to return sore mauled and battered by the ice, or when, scarce a hundred years ago, the great three-decker battleships lingered about Spurn lest the French should there descend on the North. Nowadays the aspect of the Humber is less picturesque. The guard-ship, lying off Hull, has nothing in common with the old line-of - battle ship, and the steamships outward or inward bound, for or from New York or China, or the Baltic, or the Mediterranean, are not so beautiful on the water as the old-fashioned merchantmen which used to roll away past Spurn Head to go blundering and tumbling into the wild North Sea beyond.

With one of the richest archaeological records and most complicated histories in the Mediterranean, Sardinia provides an important laboratory for studying the interaction of indigenous societies and outside forces in a partly isolated geographical context. Stephen L. Dyson and Robert J. Rowland, Jr. use both material culture and written documents to reconstruct the social and economic processes of an island society that showed both cultural creativity and continuity but responded to invasions from the Phoenicians through the Romans to the Aragonese. This first accessible reconstruction of island archaeology provides a balanced picture of the sweep of Sardinian history.

This volume features bioarchaeological research that interrogates the human skeleton in concert with material culture, ethnographic data and archival research. This approach provides examples of how these intersections of inquiry can be used to consider the larger social and political contexts in which people lived and the manner in which they died. Bioarchaeologists are in a unique position to develop rich interpretations of the lived experiences of skeletonized individuals. Using their skills in multiple contexts, bioarchaeologists are also situated to consider the ethical nature and inherent humanity of the research collections that have been used because they represent deceased for whom there are records identifying them. These collections have been the basis for generating basic information regarding the human skeletal transcript. Ironically though, these collections themselves have not been studied with the same degree of understanding and interpretation that is applied to archaeological collections.

Excerpt from Narrative and Critical History of America, Vol. 1 of 8 It was in 1833 that Colonel Thomas Aspin wall, of Boston, who was for thirty-eight years the American consul at London, printed at Paris a catalogue of his collection of Americana, where seven hundred and seventy-one lots in cluded, beside much that was ordinarily useful, a great number of the rarest of books on Ameri can history. Iiarrisse has called Colonel Aspin wall, not without justice, a bibliophile of great tact and activity. All but the rarest part of his collection was subsequently burned in 1863, when it had passed into the hands of Mr. Sam uel L. M. Barlow,6 of New York.
