Archaeology: A Brief Introduction, by renowned archaeologist and author Brian M. Fagan, sets the standard for an introduction to the field, drawing on examples from all periods of the human past. With concise and comprehensive writing, Archaeology provides readers with authoritative knowledge on basic principles, methods, and theoretical approaches to archaeology. New and updated information includes an emphasis on gender and ethnic diversity, increased coverage of ethics and the role of archaeology in the modern world, and an extended discussion of non-intrusive archaeology and remote sensing. Brief, yet comprehensive, Archaeology, 6/e successfully provides an overview of archaeology, beginning with coverage on research and the principles of culture, context, and dating methods.
