Description

Powered by Handmark, The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Archaeology is the most wide-ranging, comprehensive, and up-to-date dictionary of archaeology available. Over 4,000 A-Z entries explain the terms encountered in academic and popular archaeological literature, in lectures, and on television. Topics covered include artifacts, techniques, terminology, people, sites, and periods, and specialist areas such as industrial and maritime archaeology.

This second edition is fully revised and updated, with 150 new entries on archaeological sites, terms, movements, and people, plus extended coverage of archaeological resource management and archaeological theory. While the dictionary's primary focus is on Europe, the Old World, and the Americas, as these are the regions where archaeology has become best established, it also includes key archaeological sites around the world. A quick-reference section covers chronological periods, Egyptian rulers and dynasties, Roman rulers and dynasties, rulers of England to AD 1066, and principal international conventions and recommendations.
