About the Authors
  • This exciting collection on a new movement in urban archaeology investigates the historical archaeology of urban slums. The "stuff" that is dug up--broken dinner plates, nails and plaster samples--will not quickly find its way into museum collections. But, properly interpreted, it yields evidence of lives and communities that have left little in the way of written records. Twelve case studies define a new field, which will attract the attention of a range of students and scholars outside archaeology, in particular, historical sociologists and historians.

    • Global coverage
    • Focuses on the archaeology of the eighteenth- and nineteenth- century city in the Anglo-Saxon world
    • Innovative theoretical framework integrating archaeological and written documentary evidence
