Another Civil War archaeology title
University Press of Florida has published some great Civil War archaeology titles, and they have a new one on the way in the spring titled From These Honored Dead: Historical Archaeology of the American Civil War and edited by distinguished field veterans Clarence Geier, Douglas Scott, and Lawrence Babits. Topics from this particular set of essays "include soldier life in camp and on the battlefield, defense mechanisms such as earthworks construction, the role of animals during military operations, and a refreshing focus on the conflict in the Trans-Mississippi West". Sounds good to me.
