Since its first edition Archaeology: Theories, Methods, and Practice has been the leading educational source on what archaeologists do and how they do it
The seventh edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with additional pages and new material on the latest developments in the subject and coverage of many recent discoveries.
‘With abundant helpful illustrations and suggestions for further reading, this book remains an invaluable introduction to the world of archaeology’ – Current Archaeology
The book is newly designed with additional box features and extensive drawings, charts and photographs, all in full colour.
The text is organized around the key questions that archaeologists ask about the past and details the practical and theoretical ways in which answers to those questions are sought.
This is a truly global introduction to archaeology, and includes examples from every part of the world. New boxes include coverage of the discovery of Richard III’s burial; excavations at the Neolithic Ness of Brodgar in the Orkney Islands; snow patch archaeology on mountain tops and in the far north; Roman glassware traded to ancient Japan; the Museum of London’s excavation of a Roman and later medieval site in the heart of the city; fresh analysis of Grauballe Man, a Danish Iron Age bog body; and work on the origins of farming at Jerf el Ahmar, Syria.
