Book Description:
Geoarchaeological studies are important to archaeology because they can significantly enhance the archaeological interpretation. As geoarchaeology is an indispensable part of modern archaeological research, it can be used in concert with computational methods to sharpen the interpretation of archaeological data and allow us to understand archaeological contexts more fully. Under this respect, this book presents a series of geoarchaeological studies conducted in archaeological contexts of different time periods, ranging from Neolithic to Hellenistic.
