Archaeology began as little more than "just digging" to see what one could find. Even after more focused excavation became the norm, the "New Archaeology" of the 1960s (led by Lew Binford, but notably including Ezra Zubrow) found it necessary to point out that what one saw in the data depended on what one asked. So careful frameworks of deductive questions and hypothesis testing became standard to archaeological method and theory. Now, a new "post-processualism" contends that an utter reliance on deduction and empiricism fails to consider archaeology within its social context - a context of nationalism, contending stakeholder groups, and conflicts over ethical standards that make purely objective analysis an unattainable fiction. This book is a practical guide to reflexive field practice in archaeology; from searching for sites, to working with local communities, to methods of excavation and sampling, to new techniques of maintaining a visual record of the excavation, to using multimedia methods of archiving and publishing data.
