Product Description

About the Author

Professor Ian Hodder is a Bristol born British archaeologist who was a pioneer of post-processual archaeology, emphasising the subjectivity of archaeological interpretations, an approach which heavily influenced both his students and his own work during the 1980's. Hodder's students included some large names within archaeology, such as Mike Parker Pearson, Sheena Crawford, Christopher Tilley, Henrietta Moore and Nick Merriman. Ian Hodder now works in the US where archaeology and anthropology hold a much closer relationship. He has held his position in the department of Social and Cultural Anthropology since 1999 at Stanford University.

This book is as relevant today as it was when first published. It is a very useful guide for those interested in the role of anthropology in archaeology and a good read too.
