Complex Systems & Archaeology

Paperback
This volume provides a useful introduction to complex systems and the theory that goes with them. It is followed by a series of case studies in which human societies and environments are seen as open systems into and out of which people and objects, and energy, can flow. Examples include the introduction of new crops, the creation of new artifacts, the change of products in a market. The contributors are: John Bintliff, Christopher Bronk Ramsey, Peter Bogucki, Robert Layton, James McGlade and the editors.
