Archaeological Research A Brief Introduction
The third edition of Archaeological Research introduces the basic methods of archaeological research, including data collection, analysis, and interpretation, as well as considering the state of the field today.
With new sections on curating archaeological collections and public archaeology, the third edition also adds a new chapter on the analysis of metals and glass. This popular, concise textbook examines approaches to the archaeological record, sampling and research design, survey and excavation methods and strategies, recordkeeping, dating and analysis of archaeological materials, and the professional practice of archaeology.
Archaeological Research continues to be an excellent text for undergraduate students in basic archaeology courses, field methods courses, and field schools.
