Milestones in Archaeology: An Encyclopedia


In this extension of his Encyclopedia of Archeology, Murray (archeology, La Trobe U., Melbourne, Australia) introduces a new approach to the upsurge in the historiography of archeology and the field's relationships with contemporary anthropology and history. Representing "a middle ground between a straightforward work of reference...and an extended narrative of the history of archeology," this work seeks to communicate with both specialists and nonspecialists. Interpretive entries surveying the field follow a chronology of archaeological milestones before 1800 and by century since then. Cross-referenced entries include further reading, several maps and b&w illustrations.
