The Sourcebook for Garden Archaeology addresses the increasing need among archaeologists, who discover a garden during their own excavation project, for advice and update on current issues in garden archaeology. It also aims at stimulating broader interest in garden archaeology. Archaeologists with no specific training in garden archaeology will read about specific problems of soil archaeology with a handful of well-developed techniques, critical discussions and a number of extremely different uses. Methods are described in sufficient detail for any archaeologist to engage into field work, adapt them to their own context and develop their own methodology. While the Sourcebook aims at bringing together different disciplines related to garden archaeology and providing an overview of present knowledge, it also hopes to encourage development of new directions for the future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Il n'est pas permis de douter que ce riche ouvrage saura trouver son public : etudiants et professionnels de l'archeologie profiteront de sa qualite en termes de contenu et de conceptualisation (cet ouvrage remplit sa fonction de manuel), en termes de presentation formelle (l'objet est beau, les planches couleurs sont de qualite) et de style redactionnel (les traductions de langues etrangeres vers l'anglais sont bonnes). Pour les chercheurs des jardins non archeologues, issus de l'histoire ou de l'histoire de l'art par exemple, les aspects techniques et methodologiques pourront etre maitrises grace a la didactique soignee de l'ouvrage ; mais peut-etre que les elements theoriques concernant les diverses approches du jardin dans le monde seront plus interessants encore pour eux. En tous les cas, l'exhaustivite de l'ouvrage, associee a sa philosophie generale (proposer des modeles et encourager la nouveaute), doit promettre un role decisif a ce Sourcebook dans la diffusion des " sciences des jardins "."
