9780072978148: Exploring Prehistory: How Archaeology Reveals Our Past

This new introduction to archaeology integrates world prehistory with discussion of archeological methods and techniques. It introduces archaeological methods gradually and in context through the use of Archaeology in Practice boxes which give students a more complete understanding of the tools archaeologists use to uncover the past and the reasons why they use those tools. Comprehensive Case Studies focus not just on specific sites but also on why these sites are important in the broader archaeological context. Exploring Prehistory has been developed with the aim of offering a better way to introduce students to archaeology’s unique understanding of human societies.
