Review: "These essays are well written and informative, providing a synthesis and a starting point for the non-specialist. Particularly valuable is the detailed bibliographic information. The most informative essays are those in which authors break down the archaeological tradition into sub-traditions and important sites, providing extremely detailed and rigorously referenced information. Many of these contributions will be very useful for teaching university-level prehistory courses." (Polar Record, 38:206)
