La sal de la tierra: etnoarqueología de la producción salinera en el occidente de México. Eduardo Williams. 2003. El Colegio de Michoacán, Zamora/Secretaría de Cultura del Estado de Jalisco, Mexico. Reviewed by Michael A. Ohnersorgen, University of Missouri – St. Louis.
Ethnoarchaeology, a cross-cultural peer-reviewed journal, focuses on the present position, impact of, and future prospects of ethnoarchaeological and experimental studies approaches to anthropological research. The primary goal of this journal is to provide practitioners with an intellectual platform in which we may showcase and appraise current research as well as foreground theoretical and methodological directions for the 21st century. One need that Ethnoarchaeology addresses is that there is little that unifies or defines our subdiscipline, although there has been an exponential increase in ethnoarchaeological and experimental research in the past thirty years. With such growth we must explore what distinguishes these approaches as a subdiscipline, what methods connect practitioners, and what unique suite of research attributes we contribute to the better understanding of the human condition. The journal will be of interest to archaeologists, other anthropologists, historians, and specialists in pre-modern and contemporary technologies. In addition to research articles, the journal will contain book and other media reviews, periodic theme issues, and position statements by noted scholars.
Submissions: Ethnoarchaeology welcomes submission of original manuscripts of no more than 30 double spaced pages that focus on management of the world’s heritage resources. All manuscripts will be submitted electronically in MSWord or RTF format to firstname.lastname@example.org. If an author is unable to submit an electronic version of their manuscript they should first contact the editors. Unless contacted, the editors will not consider manuscripts that have not been submitted electronically.
Editors: Liam Frink (University of Nevada, Las Vegas) and Kathryn Weedman Arthur (University of South Florida, St. Petersburg)
