Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Shaw and Jameson have assembled a roster of authoritative and readable contributors to cover sites, cultures, regions worldwide (even continents), concepts and theories, methods and techniques. The quality of the entries is very high." Antiquity

"This is a modern, thoughtful, and extremely useful dictionary with a wealth of contextualized definitions, and important if comparatively lesser-known sites and cultures." Times Higher Education Supplement

"Blackwell's graphics greatly enhance it; drawings relate to text, maps locate site entries, and chronologies are provided for all detailed regional sections except Africa." Choice

"The book's strength rests on its geographical coverage ... Its theoretical content will be of particular use to advanced students and scholars seeking to find the current state-of-the-art approaches to the discipline." College and Research Libraries

"It should be particularly useful to those requiring an introduction to the archaeological sites in particular regions. I also found it interesting for insights into the way archaeologists work and perceive human-environmental interactions." The Holocene
