Archaeological Perspectives on the American Civil War


Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks


From studies of Antietam Battlefield, site of the bloodiest day in American military history, to Andersonville, the infamous Confederate prison, these graphically illustrated essays aim to broaden our understanding of the American Civil War. They demonstrate how historical archaeology, combined with the traditional techniques of the study of history, generates new insights into battlefield tactics, social and military history and the effects of the war on civilians and communities.
