Space, Time, & Archeological Landscapesby Jacqueline Rossignol
Synopses & Reviews
This unique work explores and assesses a number of approaches to the archaeological record, particularly the `landscape approach,' in an effort to structure research which will build scientific theory within the context of a processual approach.
Book News Annotation:
American and European archaeologists evaluate the traditional concepts of data recovery, analysis, and theory building used to study an entire region; and explore ways to integrate distributional survey, geomorphology, formation processes, and ethnoarchaeological studies. The 12 contributions are from a symposium at the 1988 meeting of the Society for American Archaeology, in Phoenix, Arizona.
