From the Publisher"Archaeology in the Making presents archaeology as an imaginative and exciting discipline by inviting prominent archaeologists to reflect on how they work and learn from their practice: how have they lived and developed their careers; why did they choose to work on particular topics; what do they think are their successes and failures; where do they situate themselves intellectually; how have they interacted with their peers; how do they communicate with the public; and in what ways do they agree and disagree about their subject? The reader will learn about archaeology, its history, work, ethics and importance through the experiences and insights of its practitioners." – Bob Chapman, University of Reading, UK.
"Archaeology in the Making is a fascinating collection of interviews – lively, controversial and exciting. The back-and-forth nature of the dialogues brings to life themes that often appear drab and dull when presented as printed monologues. If you want a colourful, diverse set of informed opinions on where the field is today, these discussions are a great place to start." - Matthew H. Johnson, Northwestern University, USA.
