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.
