Editorial Reviews

Mary C. Beaudry
By framing the narrative around the themes of goddess-worship and archaeological hoaxes, Praetzellis touches on contemporary, as well as perennial concerns and creates an irresistible impetus for student discussion. His facility with the English language and wry sense of humor come through on every page. I'm looking forward to using this book in my classes.
Sarah Milledge Nelson
If students feel that theory will be the death of them, this book is the cure. It is an amusing way to tackle theory, with many points for productive discussion..
Nancy White
The author's droll humor helps incorporate theory within many other aspects of archaeology—CRM, field methods, the public, even issues of professionalism. Having taught archaeological theory for many years, I appreciate the revised edition, which is nicely updated to include more illustrations, concepts such as 'agency,' and new references and websites.
