...some wonderful bits... -- L. L. Johnson, Vassar College * CHOICE *
I enjoyed this book and it fills a gap in academic reading for students.... I believe this to be a good book for students of archaeology at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels, and an interesting read for those fascinated by the mechanics of archaeology.... This book has a most definite place on South African archaeology bookshelves as well as its target readership of North America. * South African Archaeological Bulletin *
