Summary
"This text reviews the theory, concepts, and basic methods involved in archaeological analysis. Its aim is to familiarize both students and professionals with the principles that underlie many kinds of archaeological analysts, to encourage sound laboratory practice, and to demonstrate some of the common theoretical issues that different kinds of analyses all share. Intended as a text for students in upper-division-undergraduate and graduate-level courses as well as a manual for professional researchers and cultural resource management practitioners, the book is abundantly illustrated and referenced and includes a glossary of key terms. Suggested laboratory exercises to accompany the text are available on a web site."--Jacket.
