Wiki tutorial on Archaeobotany (University of Sheffield, UK)

Wiki tutorial on Archaeobotany (University of Sheffield, UK)

The Department of Archaeology, University of Sheffield (UK), has a new Wiki tutorial on Archaeobotany with a section dedicated to phytoliths.
This tutorial was set up by a group of European archaeobotanists (Marie Curie Actions – EU) and it is meant to be used together with a taught course in Archaeobotany.
However, it is also very useful on its own. The section on phytoliths was compiled by M Madella & D Zurro.
