The most authoritative and up-to-date archaeology textbook, revised and updated, and now in full color. 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 resource is a comprehensive introduction to archaeology’s theories, methods, and practices in the field, the laboratory, and the library.

Archaeology is organized around the key questions that archaeologists ask about the past and details the theories and methods used to answer those questions, from technical methods to theoretical approaches. The Sixth Edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to include the newest developments in the field and features an attractive new full-color design with additional box features, extensive drawings, charts, and photographs.
