Reviews

'Students of zooarchaeology and seasoned practitioners alike will derive great benefit from this new edition of a classic work. Reitz and Wing have combined their considerable talents and decades of experience to produce a volume that is useful at every level. Issues particular to zooarchaeology are covered with clarity and thoroughness, while matters of general concern to the discipline, such as sampling, are prominently featured, making the book an excellent reference work. ... All archaeologists are indebted to the authors for producing such a worthy volume: I encourage them to repay the debt by purchasing it.' Journal of Archaeological Science
