About this title


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.


'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
