Overview

New Lives for Ancient and Extinct Crops profiles nine plant species that were important contributors to human diets and medicinal uses in antiquity: maygrass, chenopod, marsh elder, agave, little barley, chia, arrowroot, little millet, and bitter vetch. Each chapter is written by a well-known scholar, who illustrates the value of the ancient crop record to inform the present. This volume represents an exciting new vista for archaeobotanists, including an implied challenge to other specialists to think about the modern applications of their scholarship. -American Antiquity
