Palaeolithic and Mesolithic Sailors in the Aegean and the Near East

Use-wear Analysis on Quartzite Flaked Tools

Quartzite is a particularly frequently used lithology for knapping stone tools throughout all stages of human evolution.

As such, this book fills in a gap in the research, and propo...

Industrial Labour and the Environment

This volume brings the history of the environment together with that of work.

Subglacial and Underground Structures Detected from Recent Gravito-Topography Data

Data on gravity reveal a fascinating world of otherwise hidden phenomena, allowing us to “see” under the glaciers or beneath the sands. This book deals with subglacial areas like Antarctica and Greenland, as well as providing insights into features present under the sands of the Sahara (such as paleolakes) or at the ocean bottom (i...
