    Soil chemistry and mineralogy are combined together to create different types of soils. There are 20 minerals that can be found in soils. Soil mineralogists and chemists can use X-ray diffraction to create a distinct soil profile. This now can be done with 10 mg of soil.   Buy Applied Soils and Micromorphology in Archaeology (Cambridge Manuals in Archaeology) by Macphail, Richard I (ISBN: ) from Amazon's Book Store.

Archaeology is the study of the human past from its material remains, most of which are made of or found within soils and sediments. Past human actions impact the soil record, as seen through relics of changes in soil characteristics and qualities, changes to sedimentation, and the presence of archaeological features and artefacts preserved within modern : Thomas Cummins, Helen Lewis, Clíodhna Ní Lionáin, Stephen Davis.

Today, the Munsell color system is the standard system for identifying color in soils, artifacts, rocks, etc. Archaeologists use the soil-color charts, which contain Munsell color chips, to identify changes in soil color. In the field, each time a change in soil texture or color occurs, archaeologists record the color that best matches a color.

Archaeological Soil and Sediment Micromorphology goes beyond a mere review of current literature and features the most up to date contributions from numerous scientists working in the field. The book represents a groundbreaking and comprehensive resource covering the plethora of applications of micromorphology in archaeology.

Beyond soil color, introductory pages of the soil book include helpful illustrations to estimate granular and crumb structures, proportions of mottles, and coarse fragments, all observations that archaeologists record to better understand subtle and fragmentary traces.
