Archaeological Process - 99 edition

Archaeological Process (ISBN10: 0631198857; ISBN13: 9780631198857)
ISBN13: 978-0631198857
ISBN10: 0631198857

Summary: This provocative introduction examines the most important new school of archaeological thought and practice to have emerged over the last two decades and provides students with an assessment of the impact and importance of recent theoretical debates. Written by a leading figure in the field of theoretically-informed archaeology, the book provides an interpretation of the archaeological process, reassessing the origins and aims of archaeology, and setting forth an inn
ovative agenda for the future. In particular the author argues for a plural and diverse perspective and for a new "reflexive" methodology : one that opens archaeology up to critique and interaction between different communities. This approach has implications not only for the interpretation of evidence, but for the kind of evidence that is sought in excavating, and the manner of its recovering and recording. It has implications too for the role of archaeology and heritage within new global environments and in the context of new information technologies.
