This introductory text surveys the techniques, methods and theoretical frameworks of contemporary archaeology. Coverage of method and theory resides in the context of an ideal research plan to explain what archaeologists do, how they conduct research, and how they use the results to construct our past. Integration of traditional and recent innovative approaches to archaeology provides a balanced scientific and humanistic perspective.
