A. Mark Pollard is Edward Hall Professor of Archaeological Science at the University of Oxford, UK. His research has encompassed the application of the physical sciences, particularly chemistry, to archaeology.
"...an excellent, up-to-date sourcebook and companion guide..." "An authentic snapshot of current chemical applications in archaeology." "... a comprehensive and current textbook badly needed ..." "I cannot recommend this book too highly..." "Archaeological Chemistry will make a fine collection to your library of reference books on instrumental analytical techniques. Perhaps reading the book will assist in solving an unsolved mystery in archaeology." "...An excellent reference resource... this book presents a comprehensive overview of a number of chemical applications within archaeology." "In any case this book is strongly recommended as an obligatory text for all chemists, who want to understand the role of chemistry, and in particular analytical chemistry, in our past history and present culture."
