'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
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.
