Archaeology: An Introduction has proved a popular and comprehensive book for beginners in the subject since its first publication in 1983. In this substantially enlarged and updated fourth edition, Kevin Greene takes the reader through the history of archaeology, its working methods, and the latest ways of interpreting the past. In a lucid and accessible style he explains the discovery and excavation of sites, outlines major dating methods and scientific techniques, examines current theories, and looks at the way the past is presented to the public. This new edition will be welcomed by students and teachers at secondary and undergraduate level, as well as enthusiastic general readers. See the book's companion web site at www.staff.ncl.ac.uk/kevin.greene/wintro/.

"An attractive introduction useful to beginners in the field, whatever their background."--Antiquity "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 illustrators."--Council for British Archaeology Newsletter "This book scores a bull's eye."--Current Archaeology Praise for the third edition: "A Splendid book and a worthy introduction to the subject."--Times Educational SupplementFrom 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.
