"The challenges provided by The Archaeology Workbook are vastly superior to many routine exercises commonly used to show how archaeologists think and work. This modest, well-constructed, and frequently funny paperback can be strongly recommended to anyone teaching beginning archaeology. May there be many editions!"—American Antiquity
This unique collection of thirteen fictional problems, particularly useful at the undergraduate level and geared to a semester's length, offers the teacher of archaeology an invaluable means of supplementing courses dealing largely in theory with practical exercises in archaeological problem-solving. The captivating, often witty problems are directed not to the discovery of one correct answer but to the encouragement of intelligent inquiry and analysis.
