The authors, a group of college professors, undertook a summer archaeological project at an early industrial mill in Lowell, Massachusetts. They have methodically put together from pieces of information a valuable study that adds to our knowledge of 19th-century American history. They are able to clarify some of the differences in the lifestyles of those who lived in boardinghouses, tenements, and mill agents' houses and how those lives changed during the 19th century. Not the dry, technical tome the title may imply, this work is both interesting and instructive. Recommended for public libraries.?Marilyn K. Dailey, Natrona Cty. P.L., Casper, Wyo.
