PressestimmenA well-orchestrated and -executed tool for advanced undergraduates and beginning graduate students...It provides mostly well-written chapters on nearly all of the common and uncommon archaeological methods, with enough current references to facilitate researching a detailed term paper, or accessing more specific regional or topical information. It should be a welcome addition to archaeological libraries and to the reference collections of archaeologists who want to help develop the archaeological interests of their students.
