Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Archaeological research has revealed much about Oregon's history in the last twenty years. Oregon Archaeology incorporates this new knowledge, telling the story of Native American cultures in Oregon beginning with the earliest evidence of human occupation about 14,000 years ago and continuing into the nineteenth century. It includes selected studies in contact-historic period archaeology to illustrate aspects of first encounters between Native Americans and newcomers of European and Asian heritage, as well as important trends in the development of modern Oregon.

Oregon's early human history is linked to four of the five major cultural regions of western North America: the Great Basin, the Columbia Plateau, the Northwest Coast, and California. Oregon Archaeology offers a coherent and unified history of an area that is highly differentiated geographically and culturally.

A historical narrative informed by evidence from critical sites, Oregon Archaeology is enriched with maps, photographs, line drawings, and an extensive bibliography. Oregon Archaeology is an essential reference for archaeology professionals and students, and also for general readers interested in Oregon's Native American culture and history.

Book News Annotation:

This superb textbook surveys the rich archaeological record of Oregon, with each chapter focused on a separate geographic region, describing both Native and non-Native activity and settlements into the early 20th century. Aikens (emeritus, anthropology, U. of Oregon) and co-authors Thomas J. Connolly and Dennis L. Jenkins (both are with the U. of Oregon's Museum of Natural and Cultural History) have done an impressive job of summarizing a vast amount of material into a readable and authoritative text, with lengthy, chronological overviews of the region provided at the outset of each chapter, followed by separate sections devoted to the individual sites. Maps and other images and an extensive bibliography are provided. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
