Book Description

25 Jan 2001 Basics (Routledge Paperback)
This work is designed to provide its reader with everything they should know when embarking on archaeological studies whether they are A Level or first year students or indeed if they are simply an interested amateur. This textbook introduces the reader to the fundamentals of archaeological study from fieldwork to the key issues - reconstruction of the past, heritage and conservation management, interrogating artefacts and interpreting the landscape. It also provides a crucial bridge between work in the field and the often forgotten areas such as theory, project management and the history and development of archaeology.

3.0 out of 5 stars Useful 14 Nov 2005
I am currently studying archaeology at the University of Wales. This book was on my recommended reading list along with three others that focus on an introduction to archaeology. The book was comprehensive in topics discussed, although I found some chapters and sub-chapters mmuch more useful than others - the level of detail and discussion in the book varies. However, I was pleased to find that the book was not dry; for a textbook, I found it relatively easy to read. Language is straightforward the tone is less formal than older textbooks. As a brief introduction, the book is highly recommended, although others are more useful if more detail and more information is required.
