Stewart (anthropology, Temple U.) introduces field methods and the decision-making process for choosing methods in the textbook. Chapters cover basic definitions and assumptions; the recognition of evidence; fieldwork motivations and design; background research; field preparation; maps and surveying; sediments, soils, stratigraphy, and geomorphology; surface and subsurface investigations; and training and professional practice. Because of Stewart's background experience the work will be most relevant to those working in North America on deposits related to Native Americans.

The field school is often described as a “rite of passage” among archaeologists. They are considered essential for the appropriate training of students for academic or professional archaeological careers, and are perhaps the only universal experience in an increasingly diverse array of archaeological career paths. Jane Baxter’s practical guide about how to run a successful field school offers archaeologists ways to maximize the educational and training benefits of these experiences. She presents a wide range of pedagogical theories and techniques that can be used to place field schools in an educational, as well as an archaeological, context. Baxter then offers a “how to” guide for the design of field schools, including logistical, legal, and personnel issues as well as strategies for integrating research and teaching in the field. Replete with checklists, forms, and cogent examples, the author gives directors and staff a set of “best practices” for designing and implementing a school.

Few archaeologists have had as great an impact on American archaeology as Jesse Jennings. A founder of Great Basin archaeology, professor of anthropology for more than forty years, founder and director of the Utah Museum of Natural History, director of the Glen Canyon salvage team and such famous excavations as Danger, Hogup, and Cowboy caves, Jesse Jennings is a legend in the archaeological profession. Opinionated, rough-edged, direct, and insightful, Jennings takes readers from his youth in New Mexico, Baptist college, through graduate school at the University of Chicago in the '30s, early professional postings in the Southeast, the war years, work on the plains, Kaminaljuyu in Guatemala, and on to his lengthy tenure and influential work at the University of Utah as archaeologist and mentor. Jennings concludes his memoirs with a look at the current practice of archaeology.

Wet Site Archaeology identifies the characteristics common to all archaeological wet sites, from Newfoundland to Chile, Polynesia to Florida and from the Late Pleistoscene to the twentieth century. The rewards and responsibilities of recovering unique assemblages from water-saturated deposits are explored. The book discusses topics including innovative excavation and preservation methods; expanded knowledge of past environments, subsistence technologies, artistic expression, skeletal structure and pathologies; and how to determine when enough of a wet site has been sampled. Herculaneum, Hoko River, Hontoon Island, Key Marco, Monte Verde, Ozette, the Somerset levels, Windover, the bog bodies of Northern Europe and the lake dwellers of Switzerland are some of the many famous sites and discoveries described in the this volume.

In telling the story of Thomas Jefferson, the grounds at Monticello, and the many people, enslaved and free, who worked on the plantation, William Kelso's landmark work augments the written record of life there. Archeological excavations show that many of Jefferson's idealized projects were realized in very different form. In particular, the book contains significant new information about Mulberry Row, a line of workshops and dwellings where most of the plantation's industries were located. The wealth of material objects that Kelso's team unearthed form a fascinating and palpable link to the past.
