Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Ten studies of the same data base--the production, use, and disposal of pottery by living villagers in the northern Philippines--demonstrate and evaluate the theoretical and methodological approaches available to archaeology and ethnoarchaeology investigating extinct cultures. Among the topics are social and material cultural boundaries, estimating population from ceramics, informant accuracy, and regional pottery exchange. Annotation c.
