A First Class Book
on 26 June 2012
This a first class book on all aspects of archaeology including the history of archaeology, surveying sites, dating methods, the organisation of societies (sociology, environment, diet, tools, contact, thought processes), migration and change, and careers in archaeology. The book got an excellent review by Peter Clayton in Minerva magazine.
This is heavy book; its 656 pages on quality paper and filled with colour illustrations. It is also a heavy read and not for those who want to skip through an easy introduction to the subject. If you want a serious introduction to archaeology, this is the book for you.
