A discussion of the historical archaeology of one of the largest cities in the world following four centuries of marginal positioning in regard to empires, trade routes, and the production and accumulation of wealth. The author describes how Buenos Aires came to achieve its current status as a major urban metropolis through an analysis of settlement patterns, architecture, the lifestyle of its residents, and the access to commodities of different social groups.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`The publication of Schavelzon's Historical Archaeology of Buenos Aires provides English-language readers a first look at the culmination of 13 years of excavations on historic sites in one of the most important cities in the Americas. This book provides North American historical archaeologists with an important summary of this work.'
Journal of the Society for Historical Archaeology, 35:2 (2001)
`...a study which is of local significance, but also contributes to the grander issues. This is indeed a volume that could inspire archaeologists in Britain...'
