Abstract

This volume, one of the initial publications in the Harcourt Brace "Case Studies in Archaeology" series edited by Jeffrey Quilter, is designed, the editor writes, for broad appeal as an inexpensive textbook for students enrolled in beginning and intermediate courses in anthropology, archaeology, history, and related disciplines. The books in this series focus upon selected areas of archaeology, including method and theory. Quilter states the truism that "archaeologists have not done a very good job in discussing the history of their own discipline" (p. vi). The series, therefore, is also designed to address this issue.
