Insgesamt ist festzustellen, dass das vorliegende Buch einen sehr guten Auberblick uber die wesentlichen Techniken der Archaometrie gibt. Es zeigt ! die grosse Bedeutung der geowissenschaftlichen Arbeitsweisen fur die Losung archaometrischer Fragestellungen. Fur das tiefergehende Verstandnis ! ist die Beschaftigung mit entsprechendenden(!) Lehrbuchern unverzichtbar. Fur jeden Wissenschaftler, Studenten und interessierte Laien stellt das vorliegende Buch eine sehr nutzliche Einfuhrung in die 'Techniken der Archaometrie' dar."
