What is historical archaeology and why is it important? Well-known
archaeologist Barbara Little addresses these key questions for
introductory students in this concise, inexpensive, and
well-written text. Little covers the goals of historical
archaeological work, the kinds of questions it asks, and the
ethical and political concerns it raises. She shows what historical
archaeology can provide that neither of its parent disciplines can
offer alone. Little offers brief snapshots of key American sites:
Jamestown, Mission San Luis, West Oakland, the African American
Burial Ground, and the Garbage Project, among others. And she shows
how historical archaeology is inextricably linked to public
education, justice issues, and our collective understanding of the
past. As an introductory guide for historical archaeology and
similar courses, or as thought-provoking reading for professionals,
this volume is unmatched in quality and scope.
