Covering archaeology from a range of angles, incorporating history, major themes, theories and methods, Doing Archaeology provides a firm grounding for anyone interested in learning more about the discipline. Throughout the book, key information is accessibly presented and important questions are answered, including:

  • What is archaeology?
  • How did archaeology begin?
  • How can archaeology tell us about the past?
  • How can archaeology tell how people use space and the landscape?
  • How can we use the past to understand people?
  • How do archaeology and ‘heritage’ interact?
  • What role does archaeology play in society today?
  • How do we practice archaeology?

Drawing on the experiences of practising archaeologists, with engaging examples and studies from sites around the world, this book gives the reader a sense of what is it to study archaeology and be an archaeologist. An essential text for students studying A-Level archaeology, those considering or beginning a degree/foundation degree in archaeology, and those of all ages interested in volunteering or becoming involved in archaeological projects.
