Conflict and Battlefield Archaeology is a growing and important field in archaeology, with implications on the state of the world today: how humanity has prepared for, reacted to, and dealt with the consequences of conflict at a national and international level. As the field grows, there is an increasing need for research and development in this area.

Written by one of the most prominent scholars in this field of growing interest, "Aftermath," offers a clear and important overview to research in the field. It will become an essential source of information for scholars already involved in conflict archaeology as well as those just starting to explore the field. It offers access to previously hard-to-find but important research.

Industry Reviews

Over the last decade or so, Schofield has output a significant and diverse body of research that has already influenced the next generation of archaeologists interested in the archaeology of recent conflict....Ultimately, that Aftermath was published does demonstrate that conflict archaeology is, in a sense, coming of age. Schofield, a leader and mentor in the development of this type of archaeology, is clearly the right person to have written this important volume....The perhaps humble goal of making more accessible these sometimes obscure, but always relevant, articles was certainly a worthwhile motivation for its publication. - Adrian Myers, Journal of Conflict Archaeology, 2009
