With a single textbook, you can now give students a comprehensive introduction to world prehistory and a thorough understanding of exactly how archaeologists go about doing their work.
This new introduction to archaeology integrates discussion of archeological methods and techniques with coverage of world prehistory. It introduces archaeological methods gradually and in context through the use of Archaeology in Practice boxes--which give students a more complete understanding of the tools archaeologists use to uncover the past and the reasons why they use those tools. Comprehensive Case Studies focus not just on specific sites but also on why these sites are important in the broader archaeological context.
Archaeology and Prehistory has been developed with the aim of offering a better way to introduce students to archaeology’s unique understanding of human societies.
