THE ARTE MILITAIRE: The Application Of 17th Century Military Manuals To Conflict Archaeology

THE ARTE MILITAIRE: The Application Of 17th Century Military Manuals To Conflict Archaeology
by Louth, Warwick

1-213270

Using examples taken from recent investigations at sites such as Edgehill, Lutzen, and Lostwithiel, this book examines to what extent individual drill can be identified in the archaeological record and prove to what level and extent this can be applied to predictive modeling of artifact collections on battlefields - thus providing depth to the archaeological study of fields of conflict.

Like investigations on the Little Bighorn battlefield, through use of wear analysis of the material remains of conflict, we can effectively tell the nuances of individual drill, practice, and movement of people across a landscape; their drill actively mirroring subtleties in our understanding of interpretation.

This work also attempts to investigate the subject of whether such manuals can also be used to dictate the survivability of 17th century fortifications -- often within urban landscapes devoid of their civil war origins, as can be seen at Alton and Basing House.

Includes 50 B&W illustrations, diagrams and maps.
