Like most, this book was recommended reading on my undergrad degree. I used it many times as a reference work, both during uni and in the field. It is easy to read and accessible for anyone with an interest in archaeological practice. Highly recommended for anyone wishing to study archaeology. Consulter l'avis complet

I know I bought this book with the grand scheme of reading it before I started grad school in Anthropology. I bought it in 1996, I am embarrassed to say, I have never read it. Consulter l'avis complet
