Bland and Boring.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History of Archaeological Thought (Paperback)
I bought this for my degree along with Matthew Johnson's "Archaeological Theory: An Introduction."
I read Johnson's book and loved it; I read this and loathed it. It is, as the title of this review suggests, boring and bland and, quite frankly, is not a needed buy. Everything you need to know about 'archaeological thought' or theory is in Johnson's book.
Don't buy this if you want an interesting and informative read.

Not everything.... the clue is in the title it's "an introduction" and "quite frankly" Johnson's tone is patronising, just because something may be boring or bland to you, doesn't diminish it's validity to the discussion.

This worries me:
"Everything you need to know about 'archaeological thought' or theory is in Johnson's book."
Look at the history of religion to see what happens when people only have one book.
