"Archaeological Theory, 2nd Edition" is the most current and comprehensive introduction to the field available. Thoroughly revised and updated, this engaging text offers students an ideal entry point to the major concepts and ongoing debates in archaeological research. Exploring the many ways of approaching the human past, from positivism to post-modernism, Johnson reveals the historical origins of different schools of thought and sets theories against the practical problems they are intended to solve, as well as against wider developments in other disciplines. A lucid and concise guide to the most updated thinking and terminology in the field, "Archaeological Theory, 2nd Edition" remains an invaluable resource for students and archaeologists of all stripes.
