"Hell, I don't break the soil periodically to 'reaffirm my status'. I do it because archeology is still the most fun you can have with your pants on." - Kent V. Flannery. In her quest to make archaeology available to the public, Kris Hirst has put together a collection of over 400 pithy quotes from archaeologists and others about the science of archaeology or the mysteries of history and the past. The quotations are categorized into subject areas with full citations and context and include sections on fieldwork, the uses of archaeology, ethics, ownership of the past, lessons of archaeology, and many other topics. Hirst's book is a great resource for students, academics and others browsing for suitable quotes for use in classroom presentations, student papers, and research articles.
