I recall asking a similar question about a year ago and got only one
answer or so, but I thought that I'd still try one more time.
There seems to be a sudden interest in conflict archaeology in the
university I study in (University of Oulu, Finland) and some time ago I
was asked to submit a list of books concerning conflict archaeology for
our library's acquisition department. I duly complied submitting five
books as well as informing them about the Journal of Conflict Archaeology.
Now for future reference, as well as my own use and for the use of any
fellow student who's interested in CA, I'm trying to put together some
kind of a list of books dealing with Conflict Archaeology. Here's what
I've come up with so far, if you have any other suggestions I'd be grateful:
War Befre Civilization, Keeley L. (No matter what is one's stand on
Keeley's book, he's been referred to everywhere :)
The Origins of War, Guilaine & Zammit
Material Harm: Archaeological Studies of War and Violence, Carman J.
Ancient Warfare Archaeological Perspectives, Carman J.
Warfare, Slavery and Violence in Prehistory, Thorpe I. edit. (BAR
Warfare and Society. Archaeological and Social Anthropological
Perspectives, Otto T.; Thrane H.; Vandkilde H. eds.
Bloody Meadows. Investigating Landscapes of Battle, Carman J. & Carman P.
Archaeological Perspectives on the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Scott et
And of course the Journal of CA, Pollard T.; Banks I. eds.
In addition to this there are several articles scattered throughout the
various journals here and there not included here.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
