    As Told by The Man Who Lived It

    Many individuals from the first generations of southeastern archaeology have passed on, leaving their accomplishments and stories to be remembered and told by their students. Pioneering historical archaeologist Stanley South has an enviable legacy of excavated sites and publications, yet he still found time to record his personal and professional evolution for his colleagues and family. This volume makes apparent the irony of how much we have learned and benefited from South¿s experiences, despite how little archaeology he taught in a university classroom. While it will forever lend valuable historical context to many of the sites he investigated, the larger contribution of this volume will likely be the first-hand account of the development of modern American historical archaeology over the past fifty years from one of its most prolific, personable, and professional practitioners. The price is my only serious complaint, for the steep cost of $169.00 is the only deterrent not to purchase this volume.
