This book describes the use and methods of photography in field archaeology, surveys, conservation and archaeological laboratories. This second edition deals with a number of new materials and types of equipment, particularly the growing use of video and electronic recording systems.

Industry Reviews

'... should be essential to every archaeological and conservation library.' Michael Corfield, Post-medieval Archaeology 'This is a useful, comprehensive and up-to-date survey of photography in archaeological areas. It is to be recommended to archaeologists and photographers alike.' Gwil Owen, Antiquity 'For technical photographers this book makes a good read; if you may be associated with an archeaological excavation then its value is increased.' Terry Buchanan, The Photographer 'Most archaeologists are self-taught photographers, often using the wrong equipment and techniques for the job. Peter Dorrell's clear description of equipment and problems should put them straight.' P. L. Drewitt, Antiquaries Journal
