This concise yet thorough book introduces readers to the basic methods of data collection, analysis, and interpretation of archaeological research. Focusing on the process itself, it explores why archaeologists choose and use particular methods over others, along with the varying circumstances of their research. It also provides a brief overview of archaeological literature, and legal and ethical issues in the field. Topics include the archaeological process and record, sampling and research design, survey and excavation methods and strategies, recordkeeping, dating archaeological materials, presenting results, and research opportunities. For armchair archaeologists who recognize that a better understanding of the past will yield a better understanding of ourselves, our biases, and social world today.
