Students beginning archeology laboratory courses and those who require a review of procedures and techniques will find this collection of articles provides a practical background. Contributors offer guidance in some surprising ways, such as giving a full essay on finding sites, including field methods and remote sensing, and another in actually consulting stakeholders for the sites. They cover rock art (how it is made, how it is recorded, and how to analyze it) stratigraphy, absolute dating, stone artifact analysis, residues and usewear, ceramics, animal bones, plant remains, mollusks and other shells, sediments, artifacts of the modern world, historical sources and producing the record.
