The Oxford Handbook of Archaeology
Edited by Chris Gosden, Barry Cunliffe, and Rosemary A. Joyce
The Oxford Handbook of Archaeology brings together thirty-five specialist authors to explain what archaeology is really about — archaeology is a vast subject, it is the study of human society everywhere in the world, from distant human origins 3–4 million years ago up to the present day. This book is a comprehensive treatment of the subject and covers all the key debates. It is designed to open up the world of archaeology to non-specialists and to provide a starting point for those who want to pursue particular topics in more depth.
