Media Reviews
Every archaeology prof I have ever met has complained about how few really useful introductory archaeological texts there are. These academics complain that they cannot find a text that discusses not just field and lab methods, but the reasons for the methods, how those methods intertwine to make a coherent whole, and how to make inferences from them. This is, no doubt about it, a lot to ask from a book. The Archaeology Coursebook, substitled An Introduction to Study Skills, Topics, and Methods, is an valiant effort from Routledge.Liberally assisted with additional resources for investigation--both Internet and standard text--the Archaeology Coursebook is a welcome addition to available teaching guides. If you don't use it as a text, you will use it as a resource for teaching..
