Description

The 5-Minute Archaeologist is a user-friendly exploration of basic concepts within archaeology, with particular attention to the region of the southern Levant. This volume is intended for students and lay readers alike, and would be an excellent reader for introductory level courses on archaeology in college and university settings. Topics range from basic archaeological concepts to various types of archaeology, written by specialists in those particular fields. Chapters are informal and relaxed – more like a chat or discussion that will help answer some of the basic questions that archaeologists are often asked.
