Principles of Archaeology offers an engaging, straightforward, and profusely illustrated introduction to archaeological method and theory. The text captures the excitement and complexity of the field by focussing on three important themes including how archaeologists think and learn about the past, ethics and the preservation of the past, and the role of science in archaeology. Chapters offer an enticing mix of a clear and thorough discussion of essential topics, provocative case studies, and practical applications that allow students to think like archaeologists.
