This is one good book dealing with a huge and complicated field of science. As an ethnoarchaeologist, I find this one a good read in my own studies as well as for my own interest in other cultures. I would recommend it to anyone who is interesting in different cultures and the studies themselves. You don't have to be an archaeologist, anthropologist or such to read it. However, this is a type of book that must be updated now and then, as new studies are made, new ideas are presented and so on.

Really boring 2 Sep 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love anthropology books, even text books, but this one is so dry and awful (until the last few chapters). I've never had to force myself to read a book before trying this one.
