Abstract

After twenty years as editor of the Annual Review ofAnthropology (ARA), Professor Siegel took on a daunting task with this article. In his words, he set out to "ponder the developments in the several subfields of anthropol­ogy over this period of time, as reflected in the topics selected for review in this enterprise" (p. 8). To this end Siegel, a cultural anthropologist, mined the collective knowledge contained within twenty years of the ARA. In his presentation, he considers the intellectual developments within each of the five subdisciplines separately (he includes applied anthropology), concluding with some brief remarks on the importance of maintaining a four or five) field approach to anthropology. For our purposes here, I will limit my comments to his section on archaeology.
