Theory and Practice in Archaeology, Paperback / softback Book

Theory and Practice in Archaeology Paperback / softback

Part of the Material Cultures series


In this latest collection of his articles, of which seven are written especially for this volume, Ian Hodder captures and continues the lively controversy of the 1980s over symbolic and structural approaches to archaeology.

The book acts as an overview of the developments in the discipline over the last decade; yet Hodder's brief is far wider.

His aim is to break down the division between the intellectual and the "dirt" archaeologist to demonstrate that in this discipline more than any other, theory must be related to practice to save effectively our rapidly diminishing heritage.
