Editorial Reviews

American Archaeology
This is hands-on archaeology that also promotes conservation and ethics. Legal issues and cultural resource management are emphasized as well. All the volumes are written by experienced professionals who stress the basics and give plenty of practical tips, case studies, and illustrations. The Archaeologist's Toolkit is a powerful teaching tool that will prepare its readers for life in the field.
Antiquity
Seven slim volumes make up this useful compendium of 'how to practise' archaeology, designed principally for an American student audience. There is much in these effective books to recommend to aspiring professionals (and well established ones too) everywhere. . . . These volumes are sensible, informative and relevant to a much wider audience thant the USA, even though the exemplars are based there. They have salutary advice on how to plan, manage, produce results and survive in this ever more constrained and demanding world of heritage that we now inhabit.
Times Higher Education Supplement
Each volume is authoritative, clearly written and crammed with useful resources and sound advice...there is much of inestimable value to anyone who teaches and practises archaeology.
— Brian Fagan, University of California, Santa Barbara
CHOICE, May 2004 - C.C. Kolb
This series parallels the publisher's seven-volume Ethnographer's Toolkit in concept and organization; both are user-friendly and minimize jargon...Highly recommended.
Times Higher Education Supplement - Brian Fagan
Each volume is authoritative, clearly written and crammed with useful resources and sound advice...there is much of inestimable value to anyone who teaches and practises archaeology.
