Description - Archaeology in Practice by Jane Balme

Archaeology in Practice: A Student Guide to Archaeological Analyses offers to students in archaeology laboratory courses a detailed and invaluable how-to manual of archaeological methods. Written by specialists of material analyses, whose expertise represents a broad geographic range, Archaeology in Practice provides insight into the breadth of modern archaeology. Each chapter is organized either by material types, such as animal bones, ceramics, stone artifacts, and documentary sources, or by themes, such as dating, ethics, and report writing. Archaeology in Practice is written in a style that is accessible to students and each chapter is amply referenced to provide readers with a guide to further resources on particular techniques and their applications. In addition, the text is enlivened and illustrated by boxed case studies throughout the main text.
