This is the sixth edition of the bestselling introduction to archaeology, printed in full colour for the first time, with hundreds of photographs and diagrams. It has been given the most thorough updating and reorganization since it was first published, providing coverage of all the major developments in archaeological method, science, technology and theory. It explores new discoveries such as Neanderthal DNA, the Frome Hoard and the Staffordshire hoard, new theories about the meaning of Stonehenge and the nature of Maya territories. It also features a new extensive case study on the field project at Upper Mangrove Creek, Australia. A new chapter on building a career in archaeology has also been added which explores the careers of five archaeologists, giving an insight into the practice of archaeology in different fields and in different parts of the world. "The most complete, wide-ranging and usable archaeological textbook in the world to date". ("The Times Higher Education Supplement").

    Comments about Archaeology:

    'Archaeology' by Colin Renfrew and Paul Bahn, is one of the most well written,formulated, and presented reference texts I have ever had the opportunity to use in my studies. It is a first-rate theoretical, methodological, and practical source for students new to the discipline, and also serves as a valuable resource for those working in the field.

    Comments about Archaeology:

    Great text, this new edition has everything in colour and new chapters on the actual career of an archaeologist. The only thing I would say is that the chapters can be way too long. But I suppose that is the trade off with such a wonderful collection of information.
