    DescriptionFeaturing an innovative "hyperlink" format of interconnected ideas, anecdotes, and lessons, Connecting to the Past and its accompanying CD provide an exciting introduction to archaeology with an emphasis on practical issues. The book's engaging narrative focuses specifically on the author's excavations, while "sidebars" address more general questions, such as: How do archaeologists find sites? How do you know how old a site is? and How can archaeologists trace the sources of raw materials? The CD contains the text-with embedded hyperlinks to the sidebars-and also includes glossary terms with pronunciations, an image bank of color photos, and study questions with answers.

    Review quote
    "A groundbreaking archaeology textbook. . ."--Marcello Canuto, Yale University (pre-publication review)"When you start to relate to students what archaeology is about, using your own work as an example, you are constantly obliged to take sometimes substantial detours into various side topics to explain basic archaeological concepts. . . . The hyperlink format has the advantage of making the detours available while leaving it to the individual reader to decide which detours are needed and when they will be taken."--Shannon McPherron, George Washington University (pre-publication review)"There really isn't anything on the market at the present that does what [the author] is attempting to do. Although there are many CD and internet-based resources on archaeological topics, his is the only one that has a legitimate interest in walking students through the various levels of decision-making that all archaeologists face in the field."--Cameron Wesson, University of Illinois at Chicago (pre-publication review)
