About this Book

Illustrated thoroughly, Biomolecular Archaeology is the first book to clearly guide students through the study of ancient DNA: how to analyze biomolecular evidence (DNA, proteins, lipids and carbohydrates) to address important archaeological questions.

  • The first book to address the scope and methods of this new cross-disciplinary area of research for archaeologists
  • Offers a completely up-to-date overview of the latest research in this innovative subject
  • Guides students who wish to become biomolecular archaeologists through the complexities of both the scientific methods and archaeological goals.
  • Provides an essential component to undergraduate and graduate archaeological research
