MEDIA REVIEWS
'The case-studies found in [this book] manifest the vigour and maturation of historical archaeology in the region as scholars bring fresh perspectives to museum- and preservation-oriented excavations, using evidence from historical sites to address a broad range of issues of concern to contemporary archaeologists.' (Mary Beaudry, Antiquity) 'This is a significant book worthy of close attention by colonial and federal American researchers. No longer can historians ignore historical archaeology as irrelevant to archival research and scholarship. The earth and its material culture evidence is an archive which is unbiased and invites accurate and exhaustive use.' (John Cotter, Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography) '[Brings] historical archaeological research to archaeologists and to a broad audience of historians and material culture scholars. The volume's . . . breadth and representativeness offer readers a solid introduction to the field and its contributions to the study of historical American culture and material culture.' (LuAnn DeCunzo, Winterthur Portfolio) 'Shackel and Little's goal is 'to provide a representative collection of current substantive and theoretical contributions to historical archaeology in the Chesapeake Bay region' . . . and they have succeeded brilliantly. . . . This collection represents the best tradition of today's historical archaeology. . . . [I]t will be years before anyone supersedes their work in this volume.' (Charles E. Orser, Jr., American Antiquity)
