Product Description

Review

'Anyone considering a career in the discipline should read this - unlike most books on archaeology, it will tell you the future.' Current Archaeology

'Flatman is well placed to write such a book, as he can draw on his experience in field archaeology and currently holds positions as both an academic and a local government archaeologist. His accounts are a combination of thorough documentation, good summaries, experience and common sense, and include useful devices, such as interviews with practitioners in the different fields, 'pros and cons' tables, [and] sketches of a 'day in the life' of a particular professional … All in all, this is a book I would recommend to anyone contemplating a career in archaeology, career advisors and those teaching introductory archaeology courses.' Madeleine Hummler, Antiquity
