Название: Dictionary of Artifacts
Автор: Kipfer B.A.
An artifact is anything made and/or used by humans. While archaeologists, researchers, and students generally know the meanings and terms used for artifacts within their own areas of study, it is difficult to find authoritative definitions for those from periods or cultures outside of their expertise. Containing close to 3,000 words and definitions, A Dictionary of Artifacts is an indispensable reference for anyone working within the field of archeology. Written in accessible language, each entry details the specific artifactrsquo;s classification and typology; raw materials; methods and techniques used to create artifacts; principles and techniques of examination and identification; and instructions for the care and preservation of specimens. Along with a headword and definition, pronunciations, synonyms, cross-references, and the category/categories also accompany each entry. Additionally, this essential text is fitted with a helpful index that categorizes the entries, as well as drawings, photographs, and an extensive annotated bibliography for more complete comprehension.
