This update of the introductory text originally titled Archeology and Prehistory (2001) emphasizes current tools for researching the prehistoric past. Anthropologists Crabtree (New York U.) and Campana (NYU; National Park Service) apply these tools in an "archeology in practice" feature. Chapters include site maps, case studies, photos, and discussion questions. The volume concludes with a discussion of the controversy over Kennewick man and other issues relating to the field's future. This edition offers a new chapter on China, a master timeline of civilizations, and a glossary. Annotation ©2005 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
