This brief, inexpensive introduction to the techniques, methods, and theoretical frameworks of contemporary archaeology follows the same organizing principle as the text Archaeology: Discovering Our Past but features less detail.
Archaeological methods and theory are covered comprehensively--at a reasonable level of detail--in under 300 pages.
Illustrative examples and case studies present a temporal and geographic balance of both Old and New World sites.
Abundant student aids include maps of archaeological areas, extensive illustrations, chapter introductions and summaries, a guide to further reading at the end of each chapter, a glossary, a bibliography, and an index..
