This title explores the emerging field of material culture and demonstrates that the study of artifacts can disclose important facts about past cultures. Eighteen essays describe how to "read" artifacts, how to "listen" to landscapes and locations, and how to apply methods and theories to historical inquiry to reconstruct and reinterpret the past.
