Archaeology essentials: theories, methods, and practice
This new volume has all the authority of Colin Renfrew and Paul Bahn's groundbreaking guide to all aspects of archaeology, but it has been carefully rewritten to provide a readable and compact introduction to archaeology for those new to the field. No other book of this length can match its range of essential information and explanation.
Long-established techniques are carefully explained as well as exciting new methods as the authors describe the ways in which archaeologists seek to explain and interpret the remote past of humankind.
