Oxford: Archaeopress, 1997. — 218 pp. — (BAR International Series 667). — ISBN 0-86054-859-7.The 28 papers which form this volume are the outcome of an International Conference on the theme The Human Use of Caves held at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne from 6-9 July 1993. Throughout their evolutionary history humans have made frequent use of natural shelters for a variety of purposes. Thus caves and rockshelters constitute a major resource for archaeologists. Too often, however, these sites are treated simply as depositional environments and are investigated with a view to answering questions about the wider world and human behaviour in general. More rarely is the question asked: ‘what were the humans doing in the cave in the first place?’ . We trust that this book goes some way toward redressing the balance. The idea for the Conference emanated from our collective archaeological experience of cave and rockshelter sites in coastal areas of Western Scotland. However, the meeting was never intended as a vehicle for our own research or cave archaeology per se, and we invited specialists in a variety of disciplines - anthropologists and ethnohistorians, as well as archaeologists - from throughout the world to address a number of themes in terms of the evidence for cave and rockshelter use in their areas. Those themes include caves as residential sites, defensive sites, waste disposal areas, storage facilities, ossuaries, theatres of ritual, and art galleries. The Conference was participated in by over fifty specialists from five continents. With three exceptions, all of the original papers presented at the Conference are published here, and four new papers are included. Most of the papers have been revised since the Conference, although several authors wished to emphasize that their basic texts were prepared in 1993 and reflect their thinking at that time; where this is the case it is acknowledged in a note at the end of the paper.Lawrence Straus.
