This practical, beginning-level guide to American Archeology for the beginner focuses on the basics of archaeological investigation. It explains the traditional core approaches and techniques that are likely to be used on everyday archaeological projects and that, in reality, underlie even the most sophisticated techniques used on large-scale, elaborately funded and staffed projects. An abundance of examples, cases, hands-on exercises, and exceptionally clear step-by-step descriptions are all thoroughly supported with careful explanations of what is necessary and why. What Is Archeology? How Do We Do Archeology? How Do We Know Where To Dig? Where Do We Begin And How Do We Begin? How Do We Make Accurate Horizontal And Vertical Measurements And Why Do We Do It? The Excavations: How Do We Dig Archaeological? The Laboratory: The Place Where All The Sins Of The Field Are Discovered. Analysis At Last! Why Did We Do All Of This Work? Archeology Today: The Big Picture. For avocational archaeologists or the casual reader interested in archaeology.
