A 7-volume boxed set introducing the methods used in contemporary archaeological field work.
American ArchaeologyThis 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.
AntiquitySeven 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 SupplementEach 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.

CHOICE, May 2004 - C.C. KolbThis series parallels the publisher's seven-volume Ethnographer's Toolkit in concept and organization; both are user-friendly and minimize jargon...Highly recommended.
