The beginnings of industrialization had an enormous impact on social conditions, buildings and material culture. "Industrial Archeology" uses the techniques of mainstream archaeological excavation, analysis and interpretation to present an enlightening picture of industrial society. Palmer and Neaverson set out a coherent methodology for archaeology which expands on and extends beyond the purely functional analysis of industrial landscapes, structures and artifacts to explore a broader consideration of their cultural meaning and value. This volume is an indispensable and up-to-date guide for undergraduates and postgraduates in archaeology and heritage management, and will be an essential handbook for those working in planning departments, and contract archaeologists.
