    One thought on “Archaeology

    1. Mathias Florent

      Colin Renfrew et Paul Bahn se sont attelés à créer le manuel d'Archéologie Générale le plus complet à ce jour. Clair, précis, il permet à tout amateur, pour peu qu'il soit anglophone, de découvrir les bases de ce sujet si fascinant, tout en utilisant leur cerveau. un must!

      I may be a bit biased as an anthropology minor when I say this book is beautifully written. I am amazed at how the author managed to convey such a large volume of information in an articulate and attention sustaining manner. Here are a couple takes thereof:1. There is a LOT of information in this text.2. The language is not esoteric, and concepts are very detailed and drawn from numerous examples (in other words: a great introductory text, but get the highlighter ready!).3. Chapters are very [...]

      Solid content, but, wow, there's a lot of it. Don't be fooled either: as long as it looks, it's even longer. They use a pretty tiny font to cram in more words per page than is reasonable. I used this with a student in an independent study and she liked the book, learned from, but found it occasionally exhausting to push through the volume of information. There's nothing wrong with the writing, but it might have been paced differently. Great textbook in terms of it's instructional value, how [...]

      I have purchased this edition and several proceeding it, and have found each to be a model of clarity, breadth, depth, and presentation, and each new edition improves substantively on its predecessor. The end-of-chapter bibliographies, as well as detailed notes and bibliography at the end of the book are invaluable guides to additional relevant sources of information. I am not an archaeologist, nor student, but rather a lay reader fascinated with all aspects of archaeology. You cannot go buying [...]

      This is the best introductory textbook for Archaeology, and I think there is a general consensus to this. The text is thorough and covers not only the basics such as "what is archaeology" and "what methods do we use as archaeologists" but includes topics on the history of archaeology as well as ethical considerations as to whom archaeological artifacts belong. Most importantly, Bahn is a very good writer that engages the student/reader. So many other texts are dry and do not do justice to a fasc [...]

      When my husband and I were given the opportunity to travel to Greece in 2004, I realized how much I had studied archaeology when I was younger, but instead I am now reading about it and other books which I have picked up along the way. I really like the book, its just not a book to look at, but to learn from. Thank you.
