In this passionate, down-to-earth introduction to archaeological method and theory, the authors present a welcome alternative to the third-person accounts found in other archaeology books on the market. By including their own fieldwork among the many examples, these authors offer their readers real, exciting insights into the practice of archaeology today. This book emphasizes the importance of seeking multiple perspectives and explanations to understand the past. The Fourth Edition features a new full-color design that enhances key points of the book's many images.


A brief synopsis, distilled from Thomas' Archaeology (1989), of contemporary archaeology as taught and practiced in American universities. Pivots on the work of eight archaeologists to present a highly personal account of the field. Acidic paper. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
