Governmental guidelines have forced a dramatic change in the practice of archaeological surveying in recent decades. Reacting to public and private development, surveying is needed to accurately inventory the cultural resources of a region and provide guidance for their preservation and management. Greg White and Tom King provide a handy introduction to students, field novices, and land managers on the strategies, methods, and logic of contemporary survey work. In addition to providing the legal and historical context for this endeavor, the book provides a heavily illustrated practical guide to conducting a survey to help beginners understand how it works in practice. This volume is perfect for an archaeological methods class, field school, or reference collection.

Dr. Thomas F. King boasts thirty years of experience as a professional archaeologist and historic preservation expert, including extensive fieldwork in Micronesia. He serves as project archaeologist for The Earhart Project. The author of three books, Dr. King lives in Washington, D.C.
