Description: An abridged version of the bestselling textbook on what archaeologists do and how they do it. This new volume has all the authority of Colin Renfrew and Paul Bahn's groundbreaking guide to all aspects of archaeology, but it has been carefully rewritten to provide a readable and compact introduction to archaeology for those new to the field. No other book of this length can match its range of essential information and explanation. Long-established techniques are carefully explained as well as exciting new methods as the authors describe the ways in which archaeologists seek to explain and interpret the remote past of humankind. 200 illustrations.
