    "Shell middens are ubiquitous archaeological features on coastlines throughout the world that have been variously analysed and interpretated as mounds of food, burial places, or simply as convenient receptacles for the preservation of stratified remains. This volume brings together information about the little known, or recently discovered, concentrations of shell mounds in Africa, the near East, South-east Asia and the Americas as well as new work on mounds in the classic areas of Europe, the Pacific NW coast, Japan and Australia. Discussions are presented on new approaches to interpretation involving the use of ethnographic studies, analysis of molluscs, the use of shell as raw materials for making artefacts and ornaments, and the variable formation processes and functions associated with the accumulation of mounds."--Page 4 of cover
