A study of the scientific examination of archaeological evidence The author is a physical chemist who has examined minute archaeological date from England. "The archaeologist has come to realise that nothing vanishes without trace and no changes occur without leaving some record, but it often requires the most detailed scientific analysis to extract the maximum of valuable facts. The scientific examination of archaeological evidence is in effect the extension of the excavator's power to interpret what he exposes. The layman and the archaeologist will learn from this major work a great deal of what the scientist can reveal in his laboratory, and the scientist will appreciate the contribution he can make not only to the study of the past, but to research on the behaviour of materials for the future." ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
