‘Human remains are not only one of the most common forms of archaeological evidence, but also arguably the richest in terms of what they can tell us.’ In this accessible introduction to conflict archaeology, Martin Smith examines bones and their injuries as evidence of violence between people ranging from Stone Age aggression to 19th-century warfare with firearms, and demonstrates how bones are our most reliable witnesses to human conflict.
