Abstract:
Papers from a conference in January 1979 at York are introduced by P V Addyman (1-5) on what the archaeologist hopes to discover from the environmentalist's research. Some pitfalls of attempts to quantify evidence from urban environmental archaeology are marked out by O Olsen (6-9), while P Brimblecombe (10-25) draws attention to the effects of climate on cities and of cities on climate. Documentary evidence on the disposal of town rubbish is discussed by D J Keene (26-30). Moving on to more specific topics, R Morgan (31-9) indicates the problems and possibilities of tree-ring studies on urban waterlogged wood. F J Green (40-6) reviews problems of interpreting differentially preserved plant remains from urban sites where bias, contamination etc must be carefully examined. J Greig (47-65) reporting the pollen analyst's similar problems recommends integration of pollen evidence with studies of other biota. The prospects of a quantitative approach to remains of parasites of humans are assessed by A K G Jones (66-70), while H Kenward (71-8) presents a statistical approach to the study of insect communities and death assemblies. A K G Jones's second paper (79-85) argues the need for bulk-sieving of pit fills for the adequate recovery of fish remains. Smaller mammals (rodents, fur animals etc) are treated, in both skeletal and non-skeletal aspects, by D J Rackham (86-93). Domestic livestock from Roman to early modern London is covered by P L Armitage (94-106 who considers various methods for weighing and counting bones for dietary studies and also describes industrial waste from horn- and bone-working. The role of wild vertebrate fauna in Wessex town economies is the subject of J Coy (107-16). W Prummel (117-22) contributes some faunal evidence from Dutch towns, and the volume is completed by L Biek's comments on the interaction between technology and the environment (123-5) and D R Brothwell's stressing of the complexity of the subject and selection of some aspects of the conference for specia comment.
