Although several manuals on fieldwork techniques exist, and although most definitions of archaeology would specify excavation and fieldwork as the core of archaeological enquiry, this book is the first to undertake a comparative assessment of how such techniques are taught to university students in many different parts of the world. This book is the result of a three-day international conference held by the International Centre for Chinese Heritage and Archaeology (ICCHA) in Beijing in 2006. The contributors, who come from many parts of the world - Africa, Australia, India, Southeast Asia, South and North America and Europe - present strong arguments on the core theme, concepts of the past, and describe fieldwork practices and teaching in their own countries.This is a ground-breaking work both in its theoretical breadth and range of practical information. It will be invaluable to students and teachers of archaeology and heritage management, educationalists and historians. Contributors include J O Aleru, Brigitte Cech, Sarah Colley, Rafael Cruz Antillon, Caleb Adebayo Folorunso, Dorian Q Fuller, Luan Fengshi, Marta Luciani, Arkadiusz Marciniak, Timothy D Maxwell, Gustav Milne, Surapol Natapintu, Mike Parker Pearson, Dominic Perring, Innocent Pikirayi, Qin Ling, Stephen Shennan, B J Tubosun, Peter Ucko, Wang Tao, Gamini Wijesuriya, Seonbok Yi, Zhang Chi, Zhao Hui, and Zhao Zhijun.
