How long have I waited for a book like this?? Well too long. It's a complete manual for using GIS in Archaeology. It covers just about every aspect of what you can do with GIS products and how to apply them. It is not a 'how to use the software' book, but rather a 'what to do with GIS as a discipline'. I hope that makes sense. Very well illustrated and in depth. It's a little 'heavy' for a first book as you will need some prior knowledge as it is filled with formula that will scare the casual reader.

This book is a must have if your interested in GIS and want to learn more about it in terms of use within archaeology. You learn more about how to use it as a program but also how to interprete it in an archaeological context. It gives you the pro's and contra's of using GIS for this purpose.

This book is a essential book for anyone doing the GIS module in archaeology and gives you a overview of the subjects. Some parts can be a bit hard to read but is a essential book.

I bought this book as a reference book, but I found myself again and again reading whole chapters, because this is not simply a great reference, but engaging and enjoyable to read
