It aims to satisfy a need for anarchaeological work of general reference summarizing what is knownfrom archaeology about human history in all parts of the globe.In defining the terms and techniques of archaeology, the"Encyclopedic" "Dictionary of Archaeology" identifies anddescribes major premises, important concepts, and scientific methodsused in the field.
