"Shackel's Culture change and the new technology turns out actually to be an account of a single site: the town and national armoury at Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. ... The story is told clearly and accessibly, and with some style. ... It is the best example I have read of a theoretically informed approach to `industrial archaeology', and as such deserves to be read by industrial archaeologists everywhere." (Matthew Johnson, Antiquity, Vol. 71, March, 1997)`An insightful discussion about the implications of social inequality within an industrial society.'

`Interesting and cogent...A useful archaeological reference for the material manifestations of early industrialisation.'
