Illustrations: many b/w figs and pls
Description:
This volume makes an excellent site report in its own right, but the general, multi-period overview of social and settlement history, something which has been sadly lacking in past research, makes this a valuable addition to Iberian archaeology. Trial excavations were made at the site of Torreparedones in the Guadalquivir Valley between 1987-1992. This volume presents the results of the fieldwork and specialist studies: ceramics, small finds (metal, bone, glass, baked clay, worked stone, architectural elements), figurines, fauna, botanical remains and settlement history.

Series: McDonald Institute Monographs
Illustrations: 2 Volume Set
Description:
The Epirus region of north-west Greece has witnessed more dramatic changes of physical landscape than almost any other part of Europe. Tectonic activity has shaped a complex and dynamic topography, supplemented by the impact of a local ice sheet formed during the Glacial Maximum, and dramatic episodes of erosion triggered by changes of climate, vegetation and land use. These two volumes set out the history of Palaeolithic occupation over the past 100,000 years, bringing together the full range of studies carried out between 1981 and 1983 as part of the Klithi project.

Series: East Anglian Archaeology Monograph
Illustrations: 30 b&w plates
Description:
^Aby J J Wymer ^DA number of sites excavated in advance of mineral extraction during the 1980s are described in this report. The Early Bronze Age round barrow with an outer bank and ditch at Bawsey, near King's Lynn, contained traces of a tree-trunk bier but no evidence of the body, plus a satellite burial and seven secondary cremations, one of which was buried beneath a complete, inverted collared urn. A mound and a possible ring-ditch in the parishes of Longham and Beeston with Bittering were found to be of periglacial origin, but the range and quantity of prehistoric material recovered indicates settlement from the Neolithic to the Iron Age in an area where little has been recorded before.

Sparse Iron Age occupation was followed by extensive rural occupation, building up over three phases in the Roman period to a large 2nd-4th AD farmstead.

Ecofactual evidence for crop-processing (including flax) and artefactual evidence for many craft activities are presented.
