Written by specialists of material analyses, whose expertise represents a broad geographic range, Archaeology in Practice provides insight into the breadth of modern archaeology.

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.
