This book is a product of cautions analysis of human skeletal remains from Ansarve archaeological site on the Island of Gotland in Sweden. Studies of human bones from archaeological sites have really captured the minds of many researchers of our time. The study of these remains adds an important aspect that material culture cannot provide, namely the health and physique of early population. The book provides useful methods and techniques for extracting relevant information like age, sex, stature and pathology from bone remains. This book will apparently be useful to all archaeologists and related researchers who in some cases collect human bones from their scientific investigations.
This book demonstrates the versatility of geophysical technique not only to unraveled the archaeological search for relics of ancient remains but also the capability to reconstruct ancient archaeological settlements.since the native archaeological approach is wild-cat techniques with no scientific means of reconstruction.The application of magnetic and electrical resistivity methods with emphasis to depth slicing technique made this work more than ordinary.The Appendix of this book contains the sets of collected geophysical data, processed and interpreted for these studies. Which may as well be used for practice by the beginners. The field layout and data gathering procedures for the studies in this book are coherent and concise. Described procedures and adopted methodologies for this work can be applied in a similar studies.

The book is based on archaeological material, architectural remains and cultural traditions which the author happened to discover during exploration and physical survey of the prominent areas of the region. An attempt has been made to throw light on the past history and cultural traditions of the area in general. A meticulous study of findings comprising coins, sculptures, terracotta, ceramics and other objects of archaeological interest provide a vivid and lucid picture from the proto-historic period to the advent of the Christian era. The exploration in the area enabled us to discover of 171 archaeologically very important and rich sites. During the physical survey of various sites a lot of fragments of basins, bowls, dishes, jars vases and vessels etc. belonging to Late Harappan, OCP, PGW, NBPW, Black-Slipped Ware, Red ware and the Early Historic and Medieval pottery were discovered and collected. The present book makes an attempt to highlight the archaeological and historical importance of the rich source material.
The Diversity and Distribution of Amphibian fauna in the Albertine Rift in the great lakes region of Africa is Dr. Behangana's attempt to put amphibian diversity on the map. It gives detailed account of amphibian distribution, abundance, endemism and richness in 15 forests for 73 out of 119 species documented in 26 sites of the Albertine Rift for which data has been compiled so far. Some aspects of amphibian ecology such as physical and biotic factors affecting amphibian distribution, habitat requirements and acoustics are also analysed. This book was written to give baseline information to herpetologists and other researchers intending do further research on amphibian fauna of the AR, for managers and other conservationists interested in knowing the current status of amphibians in the Albertine Rift.
From ancient holy sites, to buried relics and treasures, National Geographic uncovers the history and the archaeological discoveries from Scripture and the biblical world. Richly illustrated and written from an objective and nondenominational perspective, author Jean-Pierre Isbouts uses the latest scientific and archaeological discoveries to place biblical stories in the framework of human history. Chapters, beginning with the dawn of human civilization and ending with present day and the future of archaeology, chronicle hundreds of sites and artifacts found in Sumer, Babylon, the Second Temple, along the route of the Exodus, and in many other regions across the Middle East. Timelines bridge hundreds of years and several empires, maps give readers a visual sense of location, while hundreds of photos and illustrations of rare artifacts and ancient places add to the visual splendor. lt concludes with details of what remains to be found and the evolving dynamic of biblical faith in an increasingly scientific world in which archaeologists make daily breakthroughs.
Mesopotamia is a name for the area of the Tigris–Euphrates river system, corresponding to modern-day Iraq, Kuwait, the northeastern section of Syria and to a much lesser extent southeastern Turkey and smaller parts of southwestern Iran. ?t is usually used to designate the area until the Muslim conquests, with names like Syria, Jezirah, and Iraq being used to describe the region after that date. It has been argued that these later euphemisms are Eurocentric terms attributed to the region in the midst of various 19th-century Western encroachments.
This useful guide explores and explains many of the computational biology tools found on the Internet and how they can be applied to problems in genomic and molecular biology. It provides essential information and practical instruction on how to use theInternet to answer these four questions: How do I submit sequence data to the public sequence database? How do I search a sequence against the public databases? How do I look for sequence motifs, such as promoters or splice sites? How do I retrieve sequences from the public databases? The book concentrates on the simplest component of the Internet, e-mail servers, but also highlights and demonstrates the use of two other practical and important aspects of the Internet: Gopher and the World Wide Web. One special feature of this guide is the appendix summarizing and providing addresses for all the servers described in the book. Another unique feature is ASM?s associated interactive Web site with descriptions and bookmarks to these sites. The Web site also provides updates on new sites and interesting developments in the field as well as the opportunity for feedback and comments from users.

Ms. Kelsey M. Lowe is a doctoral student at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia. Her research interests involve integrating interdisciplinary methods such as airborne remote sensing, archaeological geophysics, GIS, geoarchaeology and landscape in archaeology. Her recent work explores the potential use and comparability of magnetic susceptibility and environmental magnetism, with other techniques like soil chemistry and geochronology, to understand the record of occupation, landscape change and site formation processes of rockshelter stratigraphy on two northern Australian sites, Malakunanja II and Gledswood Shelter 1 (GS1). Mrs. Lowe has participated in a variety of archaeological and geophysical projects in the Americas, primarily in the Northern Plains and Southeastern regions of the U.S. She has also worked in Bolivia at Tiwanaku and Pokatia.
The primary purpose of this work was to investigate the consumers'' value and the difference in consumption, attitude and intention to consume wild fish versus farmed fish in Vietnam. Second, it aimed to investigate the relationship between values, attitudes and intention to consume wild versus farmed fish by applying value-attitude-behavior model. The findings indicated that from a marketing point-of-view, wild fish products can be appeal to environmental and welfare concern, personal values as well as attributes beliefs level of the consumer, while demand for the farmed fish products can be enhanced mostly by appealing to the attitudinal beliefs based on the attributes. From a theoretical point of view, this study partially confirms the Value – Attitude – Behaviour relationship model (VAB). This book provides useful information for fish farming and marketing companies as well as environmental policy makers.
Elam was an important state in southwestern Iran from the third millennium BC to the appearance of the Persian Empire and beyond. Less well-known than its neighbors in Mesopotamia, Anatolia, the Levant or Egypt, it was nonetheless a region of extraordinary cultural vitality. This book examines the formation and transformation of Elam's many identities through both archaeological and written evidence, and brings to life one of the most important regions of Western Asia, re-evaluates its significance, and places it in the context of the most recent archaeological and historical scholarship. The new edition includes material from over 800 additional sources, reflecting the enormous amount of fieldwork and scholarship on Iran since 1999. Every chapter contains new insights and material that have been seamlessly integrated into the text in order to give the reader an up-to-date understanding of ancient Elam.
