This text pairs two of archaeology's most recognized names: Robert L. Kelly and David Hurst Thomas, who together have over 70 years of experience leading excavations. The fifth edition of ARCHAEOLOGY reflects the most recent research and changes in the field, while covering core concepts in an exceptionally student-friendly fashion by using personalized examples and high interest topics. This edition continues a tradition of combining academic rigor with an engaging writing style that has made Kelly and Thomas' ARCHAEOLOGY one of the most well-respected and best-selling texts in the discipline. The new, streamlined edition is enhanced with full-color photos and a completely new design. The rich array of supplemental resources includes a book companion website, as well as the option to use the CD-ROM developed by the authors entitled, DOING FIELDWORK: ARCHAEOLOGICAL DEMONSTRATIONS.

The last Archaeology book I read was all about fieldwork techniques so this book came off better than I was expecting. It incorporated more than just methods and methodologies; it also brings in why it is important and how Archaeologists use the methods to answer questions about prehistory whether it be on our ancestors or prehistoric plant life. It brings in all kinds of core concepts which I liked because it helped me picture applying this science. I am attending an Archaeology field school this summer so this book was essential in my mind, to help me grasp the concept of what I will be doing out in the field. I don't think I want to narrow my interest in Anthropology to Archaeology, but this is crucial information for any major in Anthropology.
