This fourth edition constitutes the most extensive reshaping of the text to date. In a lucid and accessible style Kevin Greene explains the discovery and excavation of sites, outlines major dating methods, gives clear explanations of scientific techniques, and examines current theories and controversies.

New features include:

  • a completely new user-friendly text design with initial chapter overviews and final conclusions, key references for each chapter section, an annotated guide to further reading, a glossary, refreshed illustrations, case studies and examples, bibliography and full index
  • a new companion website built for this edition providing hyperlinks from contents list to individual chapter summaries which in turn link to key websites and other material
  • an important new chapter on current theory emphasizing the richness of sources of analogy or interpretation available today.

This new edition provides students with a sound introduction to the field of archaeology and guides them towards further study.

'Kevin Greene has succeeded admirably in his task of providing an introduction to archaeology for undergraduates, adult students and the general reader, with his clear exposition and skillful use of illustrations.' - Council for British Archaeology Newsletter

'A splendid book and a worthy introduction to the subject.' - Times Educational Supplement

From the Author:

This book also has its own website...
The book is aimed at people without much prior knowledge of archaeology who might find the size and detail of some other textbooks rather overwhelming. If you are a hard-up student, take a careful look at this book and its alternatives, and decide which one is written at the right level for you. I'm always pleased to hear from readers and website users who have suggestions for additions and/or improvements for future versions.
