And he has done so without losing any of the traditional power of a good dictionary.

Endeavoring to pay particular attention to theoretical and technical terms not usually included in similar dictionaries, Dr. Bahn was aided by a contributors panel of 16 regional experts. The resulting dictionary of nearly 3,000 entries offers definitions of the archaeological worlds most recent terms and theories and covers techniques, sites, and time-honored nomenclature as well.

Biographical entries on archaeologists of the past further enhance the scope of the dictionary, giving the reader a sense of the historical development of the discipline. Readers will also benefit from the abundant cross-references that interconnect related entries and from the line drawings that accompany many of the entries. Forty-seven pages of maps and a list of titles for further reading arranged by topic complete this new research tool and field guide that will capably serve the broad spectrum of the archaeologically interested public.
