A welcome addition to the literature on environmental archaeology.' ~Richard Preece, Journal of Quaternary Science, Vol. 24.6, 2009
Davies does not claim to be replacing the out-of-print text by Evans, but he could easily lay claim to the best recent synthesis on the use of snails in palaeoecology and archaeology.' ~Frank Chambers, Landscape History, 30.2, 2009
This is a very important volume which will provide a benchmark for years to come... deserves a wide readership, not only among those with a specialist interest in molluscs, but also much more widely in the Archaeological and Quaternary Research communities.' ~Chris O. Hunt, Journal of Archaeological Science, Vol XXX, No, 1, 2009
Well-written and coherently presented... This book should be on the shelf of every archaeomalacologist... It brings the subject up to date and also presents a wider contextual approach to European non-marine molluscan assemblages.' ~The Archaeo & Malacology Group Newsletter
Books dedicated to Quaternary malacology can be counted on the fingers of one hand, particularly in Europe. Paul Davies work thus forms a welcome contribution to the field of environmental archaeology.' ~Nicole Limondin-Lozouet, The Holocene 19.6, 2009
The book is clearly written and logically organized... I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in incorporating this type of paleoenvironmental information into their archaeological or non-archaeological research projects.' ~Heidi Luchsinger, Geoarchaeology 24.6, 2009
At last we have a new book on snails in archaeology... undoubtedly a welcome addition, not only to the conchological shelf, but also to that of environmental archaeology.' ~Mike Allen, Environmental Archaeology 15.1, 2010
