Archaeology

Announcing a New Series . . .

PRINCIPLES OF ARCHAEOLOGY
Advisory Editors: Robert L. Bettinger and Gary M. Feinman

The discipline of archaeology has undergone an enormous expansion in the number of practitioners—many of whom contribute to the growing literature on method, theory, and technique. At one time it was possible for practicing archaeologists to keep abreast of advances in the field, but today it is nearly impossible for one person to maintain a reasonable level of expertise outside his or her own narrow specialty.

This new series of primers will publish short, relatively inexpensive books in paperback editions, each one exploring a specific topic of either practical or theoretical relevance to archaeologists. Written in an informal, conversational style, the books will include such pedagogical elements as exercises, study questions, and suggested readings. The relatively low price, paperback format, and teaching aids will make these primers ideal for adoption as supplementary texts in a wide variety of undergraduate and graduate courses.
