Industrial archaeology is a flourishing discipline which seeks to document America's rich industrial heritage through measured drawings, archival photographs and contextual site histories. With increasing interest in historic industrial sites, a shortage exists of those capable of undertaking site documentation. Thus, the purpose of this book is to provide information for historians, archaeologists, architects, engineers, and other professionals. It is also intended for graduate courses and for professionals in public and private service wishing to gain a basic understanding of the discipline.
