Summary

This computer program and workbook package introduces students to the fundamentals of archaeological research by allowing them to simulate fieldwork experiences. In the simulation, students see a map of hypothetical prehistoric sites, choose sites to excavate on-screen, examine what they find, and answer questions about their findings. In the workbook, students learn the basics of fieldwork and analysis, conduct a series of studies, and prepare a report of their investigations.

New to This Edition

  • Revisions to the program allow for the addition of color photographs of archaeological fieldwork and enhance the overall user experience.
  • Part II has been expanded, particularly in Chapter 1 on the discovery of archaeological Sites.
  • The section on contour maps has been expanded to clarify how these maps are drawn.
  • Chapter 3 on analysis and interpretation has been elaborated with some corrections in the section on radiocarbon dating and more detailed discussion of technology, social organization, and ideology.
  • Further refinements and corrections have been included in the remaining chapters to improve the overall experience with Fugawiland.
