The study of archaeology is becoming ever more complex for students: not only is there an enormous geographical and chronological range of data to come to terms with, there is an increasing body of theoretical and interpretive work which illuminates our study of the past, with which students need to become familiar.
The Routledge Readers in Archaeology is the only series to give students access to the most important work in the field. They provide collections of seminal articles which are international in scope. They are arranged in thematic volumes which correspond closely to the most popular courses. The papers are organised into sections which have informative introductions which contextualise the articles and summarise their key points. These Readers are invaluable tools for teaching and learning for archaeologists all over the world.
