Archaeology in Practice: A Student Guide to Archaeological Analyses (UK/Europe Link)
Archaeology in Practice: A Student Guide to Archaeological Analyses (US/Worldwide Link)
by Jane Balme and Alistair Paterson. Rating: ****
“This is THE book for how to apply archaeological methods in real life contexts. It is easy to follow, so perfect for first year students as it uses numerous case studies and illustrations to show you how to apply it in practice. I used this during my studies to wrap my head around how methods can be applied – which helped when methods were only briefly discussed in theory during my lectures.”
