Description

From two of the best-known archaeological writers in the trade, this outstanding resource provides a thorough survey of the key ideas in archaeology, and how they impact on archaeological thinking and method.

The entries include: * thinking about landscape * archaeology of cult and religion * cultural evolution * concepts of time * urban societies * the antiquity of humankind * archaeology of gender * feminist archaeology * experimental archaeology * multiregional evolution. With guides to further reading, extensive cross-referencing, and accessibly written for even beginner students, this book is a superb guide for anyone studying, teaching, or with any interest in this fascinating subject.
