Archaeology: An Introduction
by Kevin Greene. Those making their first forays into the field of
archaeology will welcome the clarity of this text. The best one-stop
introduction to archaeology ... shows how archaeology is practised and
understood today. I particularly liked the clear diagrams, the extended
captions to illustrations, and the key references next to each sub-section.
The text is clear, interesting and intelligible Mick Aston. 352p, 43 figs&

Archaeology: Methods, Theories and Practice
by Colin Renfrew and Paul Bahn. An introduction to the whole range of
methods and ideas of archaeological investigation. Beginning with the
history of archaeological discovery and ending with Archaeology and the
Public, it takes the reader through various types of evidence: discovery,
survey and excavation; dating and chronology; social organisation;

physical types; explanations of change. This 3rd edition contains up-to-
date information on theoretical approaches and methods, and other special
features. 640p, morethan 550 figsandpls(ThamesandHudson 3rdedn 2000) Pb

The Archaeology Coursebook
by Jim Grant, Sam Gorin and Neil Fleming. An unequivocal handbook to
teaching archaeology to first time students. Not designed as a compre-
hensive introduction to archaeology, its strengths lie in its general layout
and style which will appeal to pre-university level aspiring archaeologists.
It introduces the main themes, methods and concepts within archaeology,
whilst steering the reader through particular questions and assignments.
Case studies are presented, with links to internet and bibliographic sources,
and exercises and learning goals are geared towards preparing students
for their exams. Clearly written and well illustrated with diagrams and
photos. 323p, manyb/ wfigsandpls(Routledge2002) Hb50.00, Pb15.99

Archaeology: The Basics
by Clive Gamble. A basic introduction to the subject of archaeology which
conveys much of the fascination and enthusiasm with which archaeologists
carry out their work. Clive Gamble discusses many of the ideas, history
and practice of archaeology and how we come to form explanations for,
and interpretations of, people, places and things. Comes highly
recommended. 239p(Routledge2001) Hb45.00, Pb8.99
Archaeology: A Very Short Introduction
by Paul Bahn. A lighthearted and entertaining guide to the curious world
of archaeology a discipline represented in popular culture by
swashbuckling heroes such as Indiana Jones, but one which, in reality,
attracts devotees ranging from the idiosyncratic to the downright deviant.
Paul Bahn delivers the message with his customary style and panache.

The Future of the Past. Archaeology in the 21st Century
by Eberhard Zangger. There is no denying that archaeological enquiry is
becoming more technical and more scientific although, as Zangger argues,
many of the techniques employed were established more than 100 years
ago. This book combines a personal review of archaeological methods
and analytical techniques with a number of case studies chosen to illustrate
Zanggers arguments, including the eruption of Thera and the legends of
Atlantis and Troy. Translated and revised from the German edition, this
study reviews current thinking, explains why archaeology is now at a
crossroads and makes predictions for the future of archaeology in the
21st century. 270p, 32 b/ wpls(WeidenfeldandNicolson 2001, PbdueNov

Digging Holes in Popular Culture: Archaeology & Science Fiction
edited by Miles Russell. Originating as a series of papers given at a TAG
session held in Bournemouth in 1997, this book greatly expands upon
and develops many of the themes discussed there. The 14 papers address
three key issues: How archaeologists are perceived by the public within
popular culture; whether the ideas and concepts central to science fiction
may have an influence on archaeological practice; whether the study of
the past has a future. Headed by a preface by the late Douglas Adams, the
papers are witty, thought-provoking, at times a little silly, but thoroughly
enjoyable. 174p, b/ wfigsandpls(OxbowBooks2001) Pb18.00

Death by Theory: A Tale of Mystery and Archaeological Theory
by Adrian Praetzellis. Written as a mystery novel and littered with comedy
illustrations, Praetzellis achieves the seemingly impossible in writing apage-

takes account of recent research so much other publication and so
much evaluation in relation to processual archaeology that the book needs

Time, Process and Structured Transformation in Archaeology
edited by James McGlade and Sander E van der Leeuw. If archaeology is
the study of how humans came to be, why is it that we have so few con-
ceptual tools to describe the process of change? Archaeologists have largely
viewed change in terms of climatic and environmental events, but this
collection of 16 essays argues that we can make good use of the new
ideas of chaos theory, in conjunction with modern computing methods.

Social Theory in Archaeology
edited by Michael Brian Schiffer. The explosion of social theory in the
last decade or so has been particularly apparent within archaeology. Schiffer
argues that this has led, not only to the broadening of this field of study,
but also to fragmentation between theories and theorists. These 11 pa-
pers, which were presented at a Round Table meeting in Utah in 1997,
aimed to build bridges between some of the conceptual chasms that
had formed in recent years. The studies include: evolutionary theory, chaos
theory, gender studies, behaviouralism, post-processualism and anthro-
pological archaeology. 235p(Univof Utah2000) Hb40.00, Pb18.00
The New Social Theory Reader
edited by Steven Seidman and Jeffrey C Alexander. Aimed at those of
you who thrive on Foucault, this challenging collection of 38 essays pro-
vides a guide to current debates within social theory. Introducing various
schools of thought and issue-based theories (justice, ethics, truth, power,
multiculturalism, gender and sexuality, race), the contributors vividly il-
lustrate how the blurring of disciplinary boundaries has been thoroughly
rewarding in recent years. 409p(Routledge2001) Hb65.00, Pb18.99
Introduction to Phenomenology
by Dermot Moran. For years philosophers have been looking for a clear,
engaging, accurate introduction to phenomenology to recommend to stu-
dents and read themselves. This is the book Charles Guignon, Univer-
sity of Vermont. Contemporary archaeological theory is suffused with
references to and often professes to be deeply influenced by phenom-
enology. This is the book to read if you wish to find out what phenom-
enology really is. Each of the nine seminal thinkers of the movement
(Brentano, Husserl, Heidegger, Gadamer, Arendt, Levinas, Sartre, Merleau-
Ponty and Derrida) are placed in their social and historical contexts and
their work is described in a comprehensive and accessible manner. 568p

THEORY

A Marxist Archaeology
by Randall H McGuire. This introduction to Marxist theory as it applies
to archaeology and archaeological debate, explores long-term historical
change and cultural evolution, and advocates a dialectical and historical
approach to the study of the past. The book is a classic text, now made
widely available in paperback with a new and extended introduction by
the author. 310p(AcademicPress1992, Percheron2002) Pb24.95
Agency in Archaeology
edited by Marcia-Anne Dobres and John Robb. The concept of human
agency is becoming popular in archaeological theory, but what exactly
does it mean and how can and should it be applied to archaeology? 19
scholars, with differing views, are brought together in this edited book
which includes five statements and nine wide-ranging case studies. This,
the first major study on agency, reveals the misunderstandings and
ambiguity of its use. 271p, b/ wfigs(Routledge2000) Hb65.00, Pb19.99
Distributional Archaeology
by James I Ebert. Can we continue to think in terms of sites? In this study,
Ebert argues that this concept is flawed and unworkable and advocates a
theoretical and methodological approach based on the idea that the ar-
chaeological record is made up of many human events taking place within
the landscape. Using the Seedskadee area of Southwest Wyoming as an
illustrative case study, Ebert explores his concept of distributional ar-
chaeology and discusses issues of settlement, mobility, subsistence, tech-
nology, ethnoarchaeology and ethnohistory. 296p, b/ wfigs(Universityof
Utah1992, rep2001) Pb19.95
Technology and Social Agency
by Marcia-Anne Dobres. This is fundamentally a book about technology
and people; it is about technological practices and the social and symbolic
behaviour involved in production, technological knowledge and mean-
ing. The author probes, questions and challenges existing approaches to
this subject, whilst also suggesting alternative theoretical frameworks for
understanding ancient technologies through the archaeological record.

The Kaleidoscopic Past
edited by A-C Andersson, sa Gillberg, Ola W Jensen, Hkan Karlsson
and Magnus V Rolf. 45 diverse papers delivered at the 5th Nordic Theo-
retical Archaeology Group Conference in Gteborg in 1997. It is hoped
that this publication and the ideas presented in it will serve as an archaeo-
logical kaleidoscope in the ongoing theoretical discussion that is neces-
sary in Scandinavian archaeology, as it presents some views of a kaleido-
scopic past say the editors. A bumper collection for all theoretical ar-
chaeologists. 478p(GteborgsUniversitet 1998) Pb24.00
Semantics
by Kate Kearns. A practical guide to the fields of semantics and pragmatics
which is aimed at the student but assumes no prior knowledge of the
subject. The clearly laid out textbook aims to actively involve the reader
with numerous problem-solving exercises. 308p(Macmillan2000) Pb18.99

Gender Theory
Gender and Archaeology
by RobertaGilchrist. Gilchrist critically reviews the development of gender
issues in archaeology and archaeological theory, highlighting the major
themes and problems encountered. The temporal and thematic range is
broad and, whilst her case study is based in an English castle (TheContested
Garden), the general approach has an international flavour. Clear and well
written, there is no better place to begin a study of gender theory. 190p,

Gender Archaeology
by Marie Louise Stig Srensen. Neither patronising, nor high brow,
Srensen discusses the history of gender studies, feminist and gender
debates in archaeology, and explores the relationship between material
culture and gender how dress and appearance, food and eating, material
objects, space and contact are expressions of gender roles and vice versa.
Drawing on case studies from the palaeolithic through to the present day,
this is an excellent textbook and a good introduction to the subject. 236p,

Gender in Archaeology: Analyzing Power and Prestige
by Sarah Milledge Nelson. An important book, in that it is the first to
attempt a comprehensive feminist, theoretical synthesis of the growing
mountain of archaeological work on gender. Nelson is carefully inclusive
of both men and women, examining their roles in areas such as human
origins, the sexual division of labour, kinship and social formations, state
development and ideology. She examines many traditional myths such as
woman the gatherer, the goddess hypothesis, and depictions of women as
symbols of fertility and sex. 240p(AltaMira 1997) Hb49.00, Pb18.95
In Pursuit of Gender: Worldwide Archaeological Approaches
edited by Sarah Milledge Nelson and Myriam Rosen-Ayalon. A collection
of papers by feminist archaeologists, drawn from a conference held in
Bellagio, Italy in 1998, that seeks to interpret and reinterpret sites and
cultures from around the world from the perspective of gender ideology,
roles and relations. The societies discussed range from hunter-gatherers
and early horticulturalists to historic communities, and include groups in
Asia, Africa, North and South America. 433p, b/ wfigs, tbs(AltaMira 2002)

Archaeologies of Sexuality
edited by Robert A Schmidt and Barbara L Voss. These 16 essays began
life as a series of symposium papers at the 1998 SAA meeting in Seattle.
They deal with the subject of sex and sexuality in archaeology; the material
evidence, theoretical concepts, the history of its study and the various
trends that have developed. The case studies presented include Medieval
England, ancient and colonial America, Egypt, prehistoric Europe and
convict-era Australia and exemplify the range of approaches, methods,
terminologies and definitions employed. The combination of subject
matter and the status of the contributors will serve to make this a major
study in its field. 303p, b/ wplsandfigs(Routledge2000) Hb60.00, Pb19.99
Redefining Archaeology: Feminist Perspectives
edited by M Casey, D Dorlon, J Hope and S Wellfare. 34 papers from the

The Gender of History: Men, women, and historical practice
by Bonnie G Smith. History, Smith argues, has traditionally been a male
activity and historical subjects were generally approached from a male,
white and western perspective. Beginning with the influential 19th-century
historical novelist, Germaine de Stal, Smith discusses the contribution
of female writers, often hiding behind a historical romance disguise, to
historiography. Most women historians were amateur but a few managed

Social and Political Development
The Archaeology of Rank
by Paul Wason. This book contends that despite traditional doubts, practical
limitations, and contemporary critiques, a rigorous social archaeology is
indeed possible. Its early chapters outline what a productive social
archaeology might look like; later sections offer a systematic review and
critique of status representation through artifacts, settlements, and
structures, and the final chapter takes the site of atalhyk as a case
study, asking whether it was a ranked Neolithic town. 208p(CambridgeUP

From Leaders to Rulers: Fundamental Issues in Archaeology
edited by Jonathan Haas. Ten essays that originated in a conference
workshop held in Chicago in 1997, explore how and why leaders emerge
within egalitarian societies, how they increase their power and go on to
rule states and empires. Two of the early chapters take theoretical stances
whilst the rest compare trends through a series of case studies focusing
on Southeast Spain, Europe, Denmark, Peru, Hawaii and South America.

Order, Legitimacy and Wealth in Ancient States
edited by Janet Richards and Mary van Buren. In 1992 John Baines and
Norman Yoffee published a seminal paper comparing the ancient states
of Egypt and Mesopotamia. In it they discussed the key factors that were
inherent within these ancient states and which influenced their further
development: social and political power; order, legitimacy and hierarchy;
culture and literature; monumentalism, and so on. Here, the Baines and
Yoffee model is applied to a number of other ancient states in
Mesoamerica, the Andes, the Indus Valley, China, Greece and, as in the
original text, between Egypt and Mesopotamia. Contributors: Maryvan

over asocially stratified population of afew thousand to tens of thousands,
possessed the same fundamental dynamics as those of states, and that the
origin of states is to be understood in the emergence and development of
such chiefdoms. 250p(StanfordUP 1997) Pb13.95
The Origin of Human Social Institutions
edited by W G Runciman. A collection of papers delivered at meetings
of the British Academy in 2000, which were intended to promote
discussion between archaeologists and other behavioural scientists on
issues related to the early stages of human socio-cultural evolution. The
papers review specific concepts central to any consideration of the so-
called Neolithic Revolution, including sedentism, the notion of property,
the development of social hierarchies, domains of knowledge, and
monumental architecture. They also discuss more general problems in
contemporary evolutionary theory and compare competing models or
ways of explaining the origins of social institutions, such as evolutionary
psychology and the genetic basis of social behaviour on the one hand,
cultural transmission and socioecological context on the other. The
contributors to this volume are leading experts from the fields of
archaeology, anthropology, sociology and psychology; they include Ofer
Bar-Yosef, Robert Foley, Colin Renfrew, and Alasdair Whittle. 259p, b/ w

Social Transformations in Archaeology:
Global and Local Perspectives
edited by M Rowlands and K Kristiansen. Explores the relevance of ar-
chaeology to the study of long term change and the understanding of our
contemporary world. The authors re-evaluate the premises and episte-
mologies which underlie the study of archaeology, and look at ways in
which discoveries about the past have a direct bearing on contemporary
beliefs and actions. The papers deal with the broad theoretical concerns,
with centre-periphery relatives in a wide range of context issues, and ar-

World-Systems Theory in Practice: Leadership, Production and

increasingly on the cultural changes which peripheral societies initiated
in the core, but also, as this book shows, the mechanisms of domination
necessary to manage the periphery are not archaeologically apparent in
practice in core societies. The contributors to this volume re-evaluate
World Systems Theory in the light of work in the Old and New Worlds.

Wetlands
edited by Barbara Purdy. These twenty-seven papers on wetland research
across the world, from America, Europe and Australasia, aim to raise the
profile of the fragile wetland environments and highlight the potential
they have for shedding light on the past. Organic materials provide an
invaluable window on the past, yet the fact that wetlands contain thousands
of years of environmental and cultural history has not risen to the
consciousness of the public, the scientific community, or governments.

Phytoliths: Applications in Earth Science and Human History
edited by Jean Dominique Meunier and Fabrice Colin. Phytoliths are fossil
micrometric minerals precipitated in plant tissues which, along with other
environmental evidence, can be significant in reconstructing the
environment of a given site or region. These 30 papers, by a range of
specialists, discuss and review how phytoliths are used to investigate issues
in paleoclimatology, paleoecology, archaeology, soil science and food
science. They discuss developments in recent research as well as individual
case studies. One for the specialist! 378p, b/ wplsandfigs(Balkema 2001)

Archaeological Parenchyma
by J G Hather. The term Parenchyma refers to relatively undifferentiated

tubers, stems and wood. The analysis of these tissues can be relevant in
archaeology for assessing past subsistence practices and providing
indicators for the origin and dispersal of particular plant species. This
detailed study provides a description of the morphological and anatomical
characteristics used in the identification of vegetative parenchyma organs
using examples from around the world. Includes a useful glossary. 100p,

achieving these aims; some focus on explicit developments
of theory, others on bridging barriers between different fields

Skeletons in Our Closet: Revealing Our Past through Bioarchaeology
by Clark Spencer Larsen. Focusing on ten thousand years of human history
in the Americas, Larsen shows how archaeology, biological and socio-
cultural anthropology can be combined with other scientific studies to
elucidate changes in human biology relating to health and lifestyle and the
identification of age, sex, race and appearance. He examines what life was
like for hunter-gatherers, foragers and farmers and the ever increasing
deprivation, poorer diet and harsher lifestyles for these people, as revealed
through their remains. Larsen then looks at the effects of European
colonisation on both the native American population and the settlers. 248p,

In Search of the Immortals: Discovering the Worlds Mummy
Cultures
by Howard Reid. Egypt was not the only ancient culture that preserved
its dead. As this fascinating study shows, communities across the Old and
New Worlds went to often extraordinary lengths to preserve their loved
ones, enemies or sacrificial victims. Other bodies, such as the Ice Man or
some bog victims, were mummified by chance. All provide an invaluable
glimpse into the lives and beliefs of ancient societies, many of which have
left little other evidence. Reid, an anthropologist and film maker, examines
bodies in Asia, Siberia, North-West Europe, the Canary Islands, Egypt,
Chile, Peru and the Andes, as well as the circumstances surrounding their
deaths. 307p, col pls(Headline1999, Pb2000) Pb7.99

Ethnoarchaeology in Action
by Nicholas David and Carol Kramer. An important new study of the
field of ethnoarchaeology and its role in how we research and interpret
the past. David and Kramer present an excellent review of the scope and
relevance of the discipline, of what has been achieved, most notably in
the theoretical approaches of the 1980s and 1990s, and what is left to be
done. This book takes a case-study approach and provides ample coverage
of various subjects: fauna and subsistence, artifacts and style, architecture
and settlement structure, craft production, trade and exchange, mortuary
practices and beliefs. Furnished with examples from across the globe, this

strategy that he calls Darwinian conflict theory a blend of economic
and ecological materialism and conflict theory stemming from Marx, and
biological materialism stemming from Darwin. This theory is then applied
to several popular topics of debate, including reproductive behaviour,
human sexuality, gender, marriage, family, kinship, politics and war. Another

Anthropology beyond Culture
edited by Richard G Fox and Barbara J King. Every anthropologist knows
that there is little agreement on exactly what is meant by culture, but the
word is still regularly invoked as the core concept of the discipline and it
conveniently summarizes a number of basic tenets held sacred by anthro-
pologists. The twelve chapters in this book, which grew out of an interna-
tional symposium held in 2000, are designed to evaluate culture in rela-
tion to specific research objectives in anthropology. From primatology to
economic globalization, the contributors represent a variety of views on
whether to preserve a particular set of meanings, adopt new and evolving
definitions, or to abandon the concept altogether. 314p, 5 b/ wfigs(Werner-

by Katherine Barclay. The focus of attention in ceramic research is
increasingly turning away from duplicative amassing and reporting of
material and towards synthetic work. Those responsible for archaeological
ceramics need to become familiar with terms and methods used by
scientists in order to judge whether possible applications of science are
likely to be meaningful. This handbook sets out the range of information
which might be sought by ceramic analysts and gives broad outlines of
the different methods of analysis. A useful resource for all archaeologists,

General Conservation Issues and Techniques
Conservation Skills: Judgement, Method and Decision Making
by Chris Caple. Many of the issues involved with the preservation and
restoration of objects and things are shrouded in political and ethical
correctness and are more closely scrutinised than ever before. Chris Caples
book presents an overview of present-day issues concerning the
conservator, the nature of conservation today, and the ethics, value
judgements and decision-making that are now an inherent part of this
field. Issues of recording, cleaning, restoring, and the responsibilities of
the conservator are discussed through a range of case studies including
bog bodies, the Sistine Chapel, the Elgin Marbles and Durham Cathedral.

of cultural heritage. This was the motion passed by the Brac conference,
held on the island of Brac in 1998, which addressed the question of the
threat to monuments and cultural property by war, ethnic rivalries,
commercial and other exploitation. 23 papers assess the concept of aworld

Resource Management archaeology (CRM). This text is designed as ashort
summary of what CRM work involves, and as a practical students guide
to archaeology beyond graduation. Key chapters look at US environmental
and preservation laws and how they work on an everyday level, the process
of designing a project, the steps involved in archaeological assessment
and regulatory compliance, the process of preparing areport for the project
sponsor, Federal regulations, standards and guidlines on documentation,

Loot Legitimacy and Ownership
by Colin Renfrew. Here Colin Renfrew engages on a forthright moral
crusade against those who are de-valuing and destroying our archaeological
heritage, and rightly so. The unpublished, unprovenanced objects which
are part of agrowing illicit antiquities market add nothing to our knowledge
of past societies and this lucrative trade encourages further clandestine
looting from sites. Rather than merely outlining the problems and issues,
Renfrew admirably states what needs to be done to redress this crisis
and how all of us can play our part. 160p, 10 b/ wpls(DuckworthDebatesin

Trade in Illicit Antiquities: The Destruction of the Worlds
Archaeological Heritage
edited by Neil Brodie, Jennifer Doole and Colin Renfrew. All over the
world archaeological sites are being looted to feed an ever-expanding
antiquities market. With this in mind, in October 1999 the McDonald
Institute convened an international symposium of archaeologists and other
interested parties, which allowed them to give accounts of looting in their
own countries, to share their experiences and to consider possible remedies
or preventative measures. The proceedings of the symposium are now
published in this volume with contributors from many of the major
museums and university departments in Europe, Africa, Americaand Asia.
The volume concludes with a series of aims and objectives proposed by
the International Standing Committee on the Traffic in Illicit Antiquities.

exhibits and that museums should provide what the public wants, such as
interactive theme parks. The main aim of the book is to promote debate

Great Excavations: John Romers History of Archaeology
by John Romer. As seen on television, this is a grand, illustrated sweep
through three hundred years of archaeological discoveries. Romer
describes the personalities of archaeology, Schliemann, Rivers, Petrie,
Carter and the Leakeys amongst others, who pushed human history back
beyond the Bible and Greek mythology. This is also a history of attitudes:
archaeological interpretation was coloured by the beliefs of the
archaeologist who was searching for places from the Old and New
Testaments, Homeric Troy or fascist Rome. Chapters take the reader on a
tour across Europe to the Middle East, Africa and South America,
including Herculaneum and Pompeii, Hallstatt, Olduvai, the Valley of
the Kings, Mycenae, Jerusalem, Mexico City and Athens. This is an
attractive book with a lively narrative accompanied by a wealth of colour
illustrations. 216p, manycol andb/ willus(Cassell 2000) Hb18.99, Pb14.99

her (a non-archaeologist) the basis of his thought. Peppered with human
interest this book also is a useful introduction to some of Binfords more
complex ideas. 108p, 11 b/ wpls(Oklahoma UP 1998) Hb16.95, Pb9.95
Henry Fairfield Osborn. Race and the Search for the Origins of Man
by Brian Regal. An intellectual biography of Henry Fairfield Osborn (1857-
1935), a neo-Darwinian who was a major figure in the debate over human
evolution in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Director of the
American Museum of Natural History and a man with all the prejudices
..of his day, this book places his theories within the scientific and
evangelical context of the day and highlights his belief in the Central
Asian origins of man. 219p, 13 b/ willus(Ashgate2002) Hb40.00
Cyril Fox: Archaeologist Extraordinary
by Charles Scott-Fox. In this biography of Sir Cyril Fox (1882-1967),
Charles Scott-Fox discovers that his father was an extraordinary man, an
inspiring teacher, an effective administrator, a humanist and an influential
archaeologist during the golden years of 20th century archaeology. This
book begins as it should with his early childhood and his schooling, before
moving on to his university education, his time spent in the Army and his
early interest in archeology, initially as ahobby. The excavations and surveys
that he carried out, especially those in the Cambridgeshire area, the
numerous appointments that he held and the number of major and
influential publications that he produced, including his doctoral thesis
Archaeologyof theCambridgeRegion, testify to the extraordinary life and
career of this man. 256p, 93 b/ wfigs(OxbowBooks2002) Hb25.00

A Zest for Life: the story of Alexander Keiller
by Lynda J Murray. Fast cars, skiing, marmalade and archaeology
Alexander Keiller was an important figure in the development of British,
and especially Wiltshire archaeology in the 1920s and 30s. Heir to the
Keiller fortune, Alexander had a profound love for archaeology and put
enormous funds and effort into launching his own excavations at sites
such as Windmill Hill and Avebury. He is also remembered for his work
with O G S Crawford in taking air photographs of sites across Wiltshire,
resulting in Wessex fromtheAir in 1928, and for his unsuccessful attempts
to build a museum near Stonehenge. A well-written and entertaining
biography. 134p, 56 b/ wfigs(Morven Books1999) Pb9.99
Grahame Clark: An Intellectual Biography of an Archaeologist
by Brian Fagan. Grahame Clark (1907-1995), excavator of Starr Carr and
other important Mesolithic sites, was, and remains, an influential figure in
prehistoric archaeology. This biography, written by one of his many
students, focuses on Clarks publications and personal archives as well as
interviews with colleagues, to investigate the development of his theories
about the methodology of prehistoric and environmental archaeology
and about the place of Britain within Mesolithic Europe and other parts
of the world. This is an intellectual biography but it nevertheless provides
a fascinating insight into a crucial period in the history of British
archaeology and into the determination and drive of one of its principal
figures. 304p, b/ wfigs(Westview2001) Hb18.99
William Stukeley. Science, Religion and Archaeology in
Eighteenth-Century England
by David Boyd Haycock. It is all too easy to look back and criticise here,
Haycock places the work of William Stukeley (1687-1765) firmly within
the context of 18th century intellectual culture, society and religion.
Perhaps best known for his detailed records of Stonehenge and Avebury,
Stukeley was a great thinker, heavily influenced by Newton and the school
of the Royal Society. Haycock dismisses the claim that in his later years
Stukeleys ideas became embedded in the elaborate fantasies of Druids,
ancient mythology and patriarchal religion, arguing that he was one of
the first antiquarians to successfully marry hypothesis with literary research
and fieldwork, as well as using ideas from other disciplines. This is a well-
written, insightful case study of 18th century ideas, that also deepens our
understanding of Stukeleys work. 290p, 9 b/ wpls(Boydell 2002) Hb40.00
Thomas Johnson Westropp (1860-1922): An Irish Antiquary
by M Ashe FitzGerald. Illustrated throughout with original photographs
by Westropp, this is a well-presented, large-format tribute to an energetic
and enthusiastic antiquarian who performed aone-man survey of County
Clare and made a significant contribution to our knowledge of Irish forts.
The author looks at how
Westropp performed his
fieldwork and considers his
motivations, achievements and
his prodigious writings. Includes
afull bibliography. 133p, 6 b/ wpls,
