The papers given at this conference range over many historic and prehistoric periods as well as regions. Great strides have been made in recent decades in the various forms of botanical and physical analysis of archaeological finds which have enabled students to gain greater insight into diet and cooking technologies than was possible when all they had to go on was the survival of artefacts. These papers emanate from the cutting edge of archaeological research, among postgraduates and young lecturers from here and overseas.This collection of academic papers includes: Cookery in the Ertebolle Culture on Southern Scandinavia (5th millennium BC), Lifestyles in Early Iron Age Corinthis (1200 - 680 BC), Greece, Provisioning and Diet in Anglo-Saxon Southampton, Food and Drink in the London Playhouses of the 16th and 17th centuries and Nutritional Analysis of Medieval Skeletons from Durres, Albania."

This is the third volume of a series from the Department of Archaeology at Nottingham University presenting work by postgraduates and early-career researchers from that university and elsewhere in the world. The essays reflect that while the importance of nutrition for survival has long been recognized, increasing emphasis is now being put on the cultural significance of the production, distribution and consumption of foodstuffs throughout all archaeological periods. Changes in archaeological methods are also demonstrated by the authors in their widespread reliance on zooarchaeological and archaeobotanical evidence There are twelve full-length papers and four shorter contributions discussing topics as varied as pyschoactive consumption in Cypriote Bronze Age mortuary ritual; elite ideology and feasting practices in Early Iron Age Greece; intoxicating drinks in ancient Indian art, literature and archaeology; sixteenth-century polemics about cold-drinking; the deceased as metaphorical food in Iron Age Veneto; food diversity in Mesolithic Scotland; a singular Late Bronze Age animal sacrifice event; ritualized feasting-goods from Norwegian graves dating from the first to the fifth centuries AD; animals in the household: not just a foodstuff; feasting and the state in Uruk Mesopotamia Prospect Books is an independent publisher specializing in books about food.

The study of monasteries has come a long way since late the late 19th century. The emphasis has shifted away from reconstructing the layouts of monastic buildings to a better understanding of the wider monastic environment. The papers in this volume, partly based on a conference held in Oxford in 1994, are written by some of today's foremost scholars and reflect the diversity of research now being carried out.

This volume examines the commensal politics of early states and empires and offers a comparative perspective on how food and feasting have figured in the political calculus of archaic states in both the Old and New Worlds. It provides a cross-cultural and comparative analysis for scholars and graduate students concerned with the archaeology of complex societies, the anthropology of food and feasting, ancient statecraft, archaeological approaches to micro-political processes, and the social interpretation of prehistoric pottery.

This book examines how Romans used their pottery and the implications of these practices on the archaeological record. It is organized around a flow model for the life cycle of Roman pottery that includes a set of eight distinct practices: manufacture, distribution, prime use, reuse, maintenance, recycling, discard, reclamation. J. Theodore Peña evaluates how these practices operated, how they have shaped the archaeological record, and the implications of these processes on archaeological research through the examination of a wide array of archaeological, textual, representational and comparative ethnographic evidence. The result is a rich portrayal of the dynamic that shaped the archaeological record of the ancient Romans that will be of interest to archaeologists, ceramicists, and students of material culture.

This collection of papers is presented in honour of Professor David Peacock's many and lasting contributions to archaeological ceramic studies. Building on Professor Peacock's legacy of inventive approaches, the volume contains some of the most exciting developments currently taking place within archaeological ceramic studies, including cutting-edge provenanceing techniques, computer-aided visualisations, and contemporary craft and design perspectives. Pottery is approached not as an end to itself but as a vehicle for addressing a wide range of archaeological questions, and the papers thereby demonstrate that ceramic studies represent one of the frontiers in modern-day archaeology. Developing new techniques and finding new uses for old ones open up avenues for research which will enrich our understanding of past societies across the world and through all periods. The volume closes with two thought-provoking papers; one from a ceramic artist and the other reflecting upon the role of ceramic studies in the various sectors of contemporary archaeological practice
