Description - Archaeology and Language by Roger Blench

Using language to date the origin and spread of food production, Archaeology and Language II represents ground-breaking work in synthesising two disciplines that are now seen as interlinked: linguistics and archaeology. Archaeology and Lanaguage II examines in some detail how archaeological data can be interpreted through linguistic hypotheses. This collection demonstrates the possiblity that, where archaeological sequences are reasonably well-known, they might be tied into evidence of language diversification and thus produce absolute chronologies. Where there is evidence for migrations and expansions these can be explored through both disciplines to produce a richer interpretation of prehistory.
