Descrições do Produto

Descrição do produto

This entertaining Very Short Introduction reflects the enduring popularity of archaeology - a subject which appeals as a pastime, career, and academic discipline, encompasses the whole globe, and surveys 2.5 million years. From deserts to jungles, from deep caves to mountain tops, from pebble tools to satellite photographs, from excavation to abstract theory, archaeology interacts with nearly every other discipline in its attempts to reconstruct the past.

In this new edition, Paul Bahn brings the text up to date, including information about new discoveries and interpretations in the field, and highlighting the impact of developments such as the potential use of DNA and stable isotopes in teeth, as well the effect technology and science are having on archaeological exploration.

ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

4.0 de 5 estrelas A clear answer to "What is an archaeologist?" 17 de março de 2017
Por StarSearcher - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
This is a nice summary of the field as well as a brief history of archaeology, including what archaeologists set out to do when they investigate a site and indeed what a site is. It blows away a lot of the myths that people might have about the field as well as discusses some of the latest trends and how it is an often inter-disciplinarian field. Interesting and covers a few of the main issues (it seems) from the field. Oftentimes funny and self-deprecating. I really enjoyed the anecdotes too.

So, if you want to know broadly what archaeologists do, where they came from, how they approach their field and what's next, this is a great introduction to the topic.
4.0 de 5 estrelas A wonderful basic introduction to Archaeology for anyone interested in this topic. 26 de fevereiro de 2016
Por Joseph J. Truncale - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
Surprisingly, as a voracious reader of numerous topic areas this is the first book (Archaeology: A very short introduction by Paul Bahn with illustrations by Bill Tidy) I have read in the “A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION SERIES.” I enjoyed reading this 118 page soft cover book so much that I intend to purchase more in this series.

In college I took many different social studies courses but I never studied Archaeology. This little fantastic volume provided a basic overview of the topic in an amusing and unique way. The illustrations were also funny at times. This book is organized into ten subjects’ areas which cover the following material: The origins and development of archaeology, making a date, technology, how did people live? How did people think? Settlement and society, how and why did things change? Minorities and sororities, presenting the past to the public, and the future of the past. There is also a further reading list and an index in this volume.

If you are seeking a surprisingly detailed short introduction to archaeology this is a book you should check out. I found it very informative and an enjoyable read.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Mighty Pen: Your self-defense friend: Tactical use of the pen for self-defense).

5.0 de 5 estrelas Great introduction to the subject 6 de junho de 2014
Por Robert L. Tucker - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
After 30 years of practicing law, I've decided to retire and take up a second career. To that end, I have enrolled in a university-level program to earn a certificate in field archaeology. As a prelude to beginning my coursework this coming fall, I purchased this book for enjoyable summer reading that would both inform and entertain. I'm glad I did, and enjoyed this book immensely. If you are interested in archaeology for any reason -- whether as a hobby, a career, or as a college course that you are thinking of taking in the future -- I highly recommend this book.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Straight from the RIGHT HORSE'S MOUTH 12 de maio de 2015
Por Dusty Miller - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
A quick and dirty explanation about how and WHY to do archaeology from a master trained in a post-processual tradition, but influenced by the likes of David Clarke. Bahn is the heir to the expertise of the last generation of Europeanists, but understands deeply and broadly the purposes of even beginning to dismantle, destructively, a heritage site. Excellent text for freshman diggers and lay public, FOR whom you would have a thorough and solid indoctrination for the right reasons for investigation. Bahn will eventually be one of the "greybeards" of Archaeology; for now, he is a powerhouse.
3.0 de 5 estrelas Fulfils its objective 3 de outubro de 2014
Por G. D. Curra - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
This book fulfils its basic objective as a concise and informal introduction to archaeology, however it is difficult not to compare it with other books from this excellent author, who is one of the most well renowned writers in the subject, and also with other titles in this series, for instance `Human Evolution', which succeeds in explaining a complex subject through an enjoyable and relatively easy reading.
The book content is fine, however I think its approach and style, which includes some cartoon-like illustrations, gives it a sensation of being less serious than it really is. This is not to say archaeology cannot be funny, it surely can; it's just a matter of doing it in the appropriate context.
