 About the Book 

A refreshing addition to the selection of materials currently available, senior archaeologist Kehoe teams with younger archaeologist Pleger to present a lively, balanced introduction to the discipline, from basic methods and tools of the trade to current issues in archaeology. The authors draw from their own complementary lives and careers to illustrate the reality, scope, and excitement of the discipline. Particularly emphasized is that archaeology is not esoteric but is rich in career opportunities- it is a science that touches all citizens as stewards of the past. High-interest topics such as famous archaeological sites and engaging controversies in archaeology will appeal to curious students. The Kehoe-Pleger module is brief enough to fit into a general introductory anthropology course and solid enough to serve as a backbone text for introductory archaeology courses.
