9780415602129: Doing Archaeology: A Subject Guide for Students (Doing... Series)

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.

‘Doing Archaeology is comprehensive, informative, engaging, and entertaining! An extremely useful resource for students thinking of archaeology as a career, for those interested in volunteering on archaeological projects, and for archaeologists advising young people interested in the field.
