Product description

Review

From the previous edition: 'This is a work which all thinking archaeologists will wish to have on their shelves.' Colin Renfrew, Nature

' … a substantial update …' Journal of Medieval Archaeology

'… remains the very best macro-history available.' Cambridge Archaeological Journal

Book Description

In its original edition, Bruce Trigger's book was the first ever to examine the history of archaeological thought from medieval times to the present in world-wide perspective. Now, in this new edition, he both updates the original work and introduces new archaeological perspectives and concerns.

Format: Paperback
Bruce Trigger's book deals with the genesis of archaeology up to the beginnings of post-processualism. Particularly strong on functionalism and the New Archaeology, it also very useful in describing the development of archaeology in its early stages. There are some omissions, such as the increasingly popular archaeological study of gender, but in general a wide approach covering archaeology in Britain, America and Europe. This book is vital for undergrad students and anyone wishing to learm more about what it is we study.

For any Archaeology student, academic or lay interest reader this is the essential volume required to cut through the matrix of Theory. Trigger excelled at summarising difficult concepts in short paragraphs before exploring their major themes. Wonderful.
