Book Review: Experimentelle Archäologie. Eine Gratwanderung zwischen Wissenschaft und Kommerz by Dirk Vorlauf
The largest part of the book is filled with an extensive on experimental archaeology. Over 3,500 titles are collected by Vorlauf, which are sorted alphabetically by author name and can be searched for by theme. With that, this book offers the interested reader an extensive list of literature covering 10 languages. It does not simply offer an overview over already executed experiments, but also offers a good start in individual, specialist themes. This is especially interesting for those experimenters who want to become active themselves and – as is important with every serious project – start with a literature search. For them, Vorlauf has presented a ‘full cupboard with tools’, which should be on the shelf of every experimenter.
