This entertaining Very Short Introduction reflects the enduring popularity of archaeology-a subject which appeals as a pastime, career, and academic discipline, encompasses the whole globe, and surveys 2.5 million years. From deserts to jungles, from deep caves to mountain tops, from pebble tools to satellite photographs, from excavation to abstract theory, archaeology interacts with nearly every other discipline in its attempts to reconstruct the past.
Author notes provided by SyndeticsPaul G. Bahn obtained a doctorate in archaeology from the University of Cambridge and is an acknowledged expert on Ice Age cave art. He is the author and editor of several books on archaeology and resides in the U.K.
