Designed as a supplement to introductory texts in archaeology, Reading Archaeology offers selections from scholarly journals and books as well as from semi-scientific periodicals and the popular press. Readings are chosen based on their potential to stimulate student interest and introduce a diversity of archaeological literature in all its major forms.



Reading Archaeology pairs well with Muckle's core text, Introducing Archaeology, which uses the same thematic organization, but can easily be used with any other introductory archaeology text.

About the Author:

Robert J. Muckle is Professor of Anthropology at Capilano University.

Review:

This thoughtfully assembled collection of readings provides students with an accessible introduction to the intellectual richness of archaeology today. Brief introductions and study questions accompany each article providing excellent guidance to the reader.

(Michael Chazan, University of Toronto)

Reading Archaeology is so well conceived and constructed that it can stand alone as an effective source for understanding archaeology with both depth and breadth. Unlike most readers, or even many texts, Muckle provides an interesting historical development of the field in context with well-chosen illustrative readings. He offers a striking view of the great diversity in sub-field concentration, as well as contrasting perspectives involved in the discipline. I recommend this reader for optimal use with his new and equally outstanding text, Introducing Archaeology, which follows the same strong construction. However, I also plan to use its sound pedagogy as a teaching guide for new social science professors! Not many archaeology books are as useful and well written, with both faculty and student in mind.

(Mark Lewine, Cuyahoga Community College, and Carnegie Associate Professor of the Year, 2006)
