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.
