Pharaonic inscriptions from the southern Eastern Desert of Egypt by Russell D Rothe( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over a decade, Rothe, Rapp, and Miller traversed the 60,000-sq.-km area between the Nile and the Red Sea, mostly on foot, photographing inscriptions and systematically surveying the entire region. The results of their investigations of the inscriptional remains found in this vast, mountainous desert are here published for the first time; the corpus will be an important addition to our knowledge of the range and scope of the activities of the ancient Egyptians, especially outside the Nile Valley."--Jacket
Geoarchaeology : the earth-science approach to archaeological interpretation by George Robert Rapp( Book )

21 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 1,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Archaeomineralogy by George Robert Rapp( )

36 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book presents a systematic look at the utilization of rock and mineral materials from prehistoric times through the 17th century ACE. The coverage is nearly world-wide and gives more than 800 references. Among the numerous illustrations are maps showing the location of major rock, mineral, and ore deposits, as well as photos and drawings of minerals, artifacts, statues, and large structures. Major portions of this book are based on 34 years of experience the author has doing geoarchaeology, archaeomineralogy, and archaeometallurgy in more than a dozen countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, and North America."--Jacket

Excavations at Nichoria in southwest Greece by Minnesota Messenia Expedition( Book )

13 editions published between 1978 and 1992 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume is the third of four reports (and the second to be published) on the findings of an excavation in the Southwestern Peloponnese of Greece. In the 1960s an interdisciplinary group known as the University of Minnesota Messenia Expedition first explored the region of Messenia, then focused on a specific site, the Nichoria ridge, where fieldwork was completed in 1975. Volume I in the Nichoria Series, published by Minnesota in 1978, dealth with the site and environs as they existed in prehistoric times and evolved to the present, and with specific analytic techniques. Volume II (in preparation) will present the cultural evidence for human occupation of the ridge in its most flourishing phases, the Middle and Late Bronze Ages, and Volume IV will provide an overview of the site within the context of the Messenian region and the wider Aegean setting. Volume III deals with the two major occupation phases after the Bronze Age - the so-called Dark and Early Iron Age (about 11500-800 B.C.) and the Middle Byzantine period (about 961-1205 A.D.) Previous documentation on these periods has been meagre; information on the Dark Age was based on the contents of scattered graves and cemeteries, and the absence of stratified habitation debris made it difficult to establish a dependable relative chronology. The Nichoria study, however, derives from the first intensively excavated Dark Age settlement on the Greek mainland, and it should help illuminate these poorly understood epochs in Greek history. In fourteen papers, the authors describe architectural remains, pottery, burials, and small finds of metal and clay, and discuss their significance. Among their findings is archaeological evidence that Nichoria may be equated with one of the major towns recorded in Linear B tablets as part of the kingdom of Pylos. The discovery of a very large apsidal building of the Dark Age, which seems to have been a communal religious center and home of the chieftain, may represent an important early link in the evolution of the classical Greek temple. And the ruined homes of a medieval farming village provide the first material evidence recovered outside of Corinth for secular life in the Peloponnese during the Middle Byzantine period
Troy, the archaeological geology( Book )

Phytolith systematics : emerging issues by George Robert Rapp( Book )

11 editions published between 1992 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of the relationship of phytoliths to the human use of plants and the environmental context of cultural change has been handicapped by the paucity of data on many important plant groups and by the unavailablity of comparative collections. This volume, which includes an annotated bibliography, will add materially to the corpus of available systematics for these important plant groups

An annotated bibliography of 16-mm. films useful in college-level geology and earth science courses by Noel Potter( Book )

2 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The approximately 300 films reviewed for this bibliography are placed into three categories: those considered appropriate for undergraduate courses in geology or earth science; those considered not appropriate for this use; and those judged to be too elementary. The 160 films considered appropriate are listed alphabetically by title with this bibliographic information: the reviewer's annotation and editorial comments including recommended level, the producer/distributor, and data on the film (sound or silent, color or black and white, date of release and running time). Prices and rental fees are not included in the bibliography. Appendices include the list of films judged not appropriate, the list considered too elementary, films listed by courses, by subjects, and by geographic area (states and countries), and an address list of film sources.
