Geoarchaeology in action offers exactly what the title promises: A series of examples through some very intresting study cases that not only will provide the reader with a very good understanding of how geoarchaeological survey is conducted and what kind of questions someone tries to answer through geoarchaeology, but also will give you an idea of what kind of geoarchaeologist you are :-). Moreover, it is very well written. The only thing someone could argue though is that this is not a "stand-alone" book about geoarchaeology. Before someone reads this book, he must already be familiar with all the basic theoretical concepts of geoarchaeology, and this title does not offer that. The role of the first part of this book is to provide the reader with only a "satisfactory" glimpse of the basic concepts. But this is a good thing as some very interesting titles have already been published about the theoretical basics of geoarchaeology. A very good title!
