Archaeology : The Science of the Human Past Paperback / softback


Archaeology: The Science of the Human Past provides an introduction to the broad and fascinating world of archaeology from the scientific perspective.

Conveying the exhilaration of archaeological work, it explores the ways archaeologists analyse and interpret evidence.

Varying perspectives are considered to provide holistic coverage of archaeological techniques and methods and show how the complexity of the past can be captured by the empirical science of archaeology. The Fifth Edition has been updated and revised to include the latest archaeological approaches and the impact developments in archaeological science have made in recent years.

The chapter on bioarchaeology has been completely rewritten to reflect these developments.

Archaeology: An Introduction will allow students to understand the theoretical and scientific aspects of archaeology and how various archaeological perspectives and techniques help us understand how and what we know about the past.
