This is the first truly global survey of the relationship between artifacts and texts from historiographical, methodological, and analytical perspectives. It analyzes the crucial relationship between material culture and writing in ancient societies, employing examples from twelve major disciplines in historical archaeology and summarizing their role in five global methodological approaches. It is valuable reading for advanced (under/post) graduate students, and instructors in any historical archaeological subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is an excellent book for use as a text to provide students with a view of historical archaeology in global perspective or, as it was in my case, a very interesting book to be enjoyed for the pleasure of reading and for the information it presents."
(Journal of Anthropological Research (November 1999)
"... an ambitious text in the scope of information that is incorporated into the text, and ultimately it is successful ... a significant contribution to the discipline. Not only ... an expansive international exploration of historical archaeology, but it also is a provocative new commentary on the discipline's most central relationship - that of the interplay between artifact and text."
(Historical Archaeology, 34:2)
"This is an excellent text for students of the history of archaeology and for anyone interested in the interplay between artifacts and texts."
(Religious Studies Review, 29:3 (July 2003)
