About this title

Synopsis:

From archaeological jargon to interpretation, Archaeology: The Basics provides an invaluable overview of a fascinating subject and probes the depths of this increasingly popular discipline, presenting critical approaches to the understanding of our past.

Lively and engaging, Archaeology: The Basics fires the archaeological imagination whilst tackling such questions as:

  • What are the basic concepts of archaeology?
  • How and what do we know about people and objects from the past?
  • What makes a good explanation in archaeology?
  • Why dig here?

This ultimate guide for all new and would-be archaeologists, whether they are students or interested amateurs, will prove an invaluable introduction to this wonderfully infectious discipline.

Review:

'Strongly recommended for novice undergraduates ... makes an absolutely excellent case for archaeology as a discipline.' - Antiquity

'This is a thought-provoking guide to what Gamble terms an 'archaeological imagination'. The digger boasting the worn stub of a trowel in their right back trouser pocket should feel incomplete without a copy of Archaeology: The Basics in the other.' - Current Archaeology
