Timex Expedition Fullsize Dark Brown Leather Strap Watch -T49261SU
Timex Expedition Fullsize Dark Brown Leather Strap Watch -T49261SU

5.0 out of 5 stars This watch has endured a great many arduous caving trips, 13 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This watch has endured a great many arduous caving trips; likewise several foreign expeditions. Even the extreme climatic conditions of Central America did not phase it, neither has regular prolonged immersion in both salt and fresh water at depths of 30+ metres. Since purchased it has done its job well, without giving me second thoughts of it as a choice. When it fails I shall swiftly buy another.

This book is without doubt the one to enhance your understanding of how a site works, I bought two, one for best the other as a field copy. If you are new to archaeology you will not be disappointed, it explains so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it, 8 Mar. 2014

As a mature student of archaeology, when first faced with the breadth of the subject, I became very much overwhelmed with information overload; how differing periods, and various archaeological aspects related, even dovetailed, with one another, not least the theoretical side of the discipline. Mr. Bahn's book allowed me to stop and reflect on some of the more adamant written works I'd previously studied.
He deals with the subject in an open, welcoming, explanatory manner, that illustrates how so many of the seemingly remote areas of archaeology actually do interact. Well explained and written with a superb sense of humour, encouraging the reader/student to enjoy the subject rather than suffer from it.

If I ever meet the man I'll shake his hand, and thank him profusely; it is a refreshing view of a subject by someone who has pursued it throughout their life, and who fervently hopes to pass the enjoyment onto the next student in line.

Prior to the commencement of my course, I saw this book and thought it worthwhile to obtain, as the academic year progressed I became increasing disappointed with its contents. Many of the Irish specific references I looked up were not just present. Think twice before you spend your money
