Industrial Archaeology by Peter Neaverson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The beginnings of industrialization had an enormous impact on social conditions, buildings and material culture. This text uses the techniques of mainstream archaeological excavation, analysis and interpretation to present an enlightening picture of industrial society. Technology and heritage have, until recently, been the focal points of study in industrialization. The text sets out a coherent methodology for the discipline which expands on and extends beyond the purely functional analysis of industrial landscapes, structures and artefacts to a broader consideration of their cultural meaning and value. The authors examine, for example, the social context of industrialization, including the effect of new means of production on working patterns, diet and health. The text provides a guide for undergraduates and postgraduates in archaeology and heritage management, and should be a useful handbook for those working in planning departments and contract archaeologists.
