The best-selling archaeology textbook in the world, revised and updated, and now in its seventh edition

Since its first edition, Renfrew and Bahn’s Archaeology: Theories, Methods, and Practice has been the leading academic source on what archaeologists do and how they do it. This indispensable book is a comprehensive introduction to archaeology in the field, the laboratory, and the library.

Archaeology is organized around the key questions that archaeologists ask about the past and details the practical and theoretical ways in which answers to those questions are sought. The seventh edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the newest developments in the subject and the latest discoveries, and is newly designed with additional box features and extensive drawings, charts, and photographs, all in full color.

Industry Reviews

'With abundant helpful illustrations and suggestions for further reading, this book remains an invaluable introduction to the world of archaeology' - Current Archaeology
'It is invaluable in its breadth of coverage of the discipline' - Paul Halstead, Sheffield University
'Very simply, Renfrew & Bahn is the book that we recommend to all our students as the 'if you are going to buy only one book, this is the book you need to buy'. We would expect all of our students to use it, and it is recommended for a range of first and second year modules, both core and optional. Quite simply, it is the best textbook.' - Mark Pearce, Nottingham University
