From traditional to applied archaeology, the data gathered in this volume may serve as a field manual and resource guide for both the amateur and the professional. It aims to satisfy a need for an archaeological work of general reference summarizing what is known from archaeology about human history in all parts of the globe." "In defining the terms and techniques of archaeology, the Encyclopedic Dictionary of Archaeology identifies and describes major premises, important concepts, and scientific methods used in the field. There is a balance of New World and Old World coverage, theory, method, and practice. The work is the largest and most comprehensive dictionary of its kind with a total of over 7,000 entries."--BOOK JACKET."
