Governmental guidelines have forced a dramatic change in the practice of archaeological surveying in recent decades. In response to public and private development, surveying is needed to accurately inventory the cultural resources of a region and provide guidance for their preservation and management. Greg White and Tom King provide a handy introduction to students, field novices, and land managers on the strategies, methods, and logic of contemporary survey work. In addition to providing the legal and historical context for this endeavor the book provides a heavily illustrated, practical guide to conducting a survey to help beginners understand how it works in practice. This volume is perfect for an archaeological methods class, field school, or reference collection.

I currently work with Dr. White on an archaeology project in northern Nevada and I can tell you that he certainly lives and works by everything in his book. Dr. White is very knowledgeable concerning field work and the most efficient way to complete an archaeological survey. I highly recommend this book for anyone that wants to learn the right way to do field survey and for anyone that wants to learn some new tips and tricks that could make their lives easier.Was this review helpful?
