I purchased this dictionary to help me with my undergraduate degree in Archaeology. During my course, I have found this to be a very useful resource as it makes understanding terminology in journals and books much easier. Furthermore I like that the dictionary covers terminology but also archaeological sites, excavations, case studies, artefacts and archaeological pioneers which provide a useful reference for my studies. Very happy with this purchase and would 100% recommend this dictionary to any archaeological student or archaeologist

Useful little dictionary to aid those non-archaeologist and archaeologist alike!

What is good about this dictionary is that not only does it contain the practical words and terminology of archaeology but also it contains sites, excavations and artefacts of the more well know case studies and items such as Boxgrove and the Rosetta Stone.

However, this edition was last printed in 2003 but now there is a 2008 reprint which is probably more appropriate.

I have used this for most of my essays, good book very handy. Especially, since the Google book preview doesn't have the page numbers you'd need for referencing.
