Subjects: Archaeology

Distributed by University of Exeter Press.

Archaeological writing is faced with an impasse: it has become repetitive and remote from the reading public. No large-scale excavations are taking place because of the large sums of money required. Archaeological theories are rapidly overturned and archaeological methods are trapped in the technocracy of Archaeometry. The Excavation Manual has emerged from a crisis of this kind. Its texts, written in simple, everyday language, attempt to hint at this situation. Sometimes they are merely descriptive and sometimes condemnatory or satirical. Above all, however, they envisage the renewal of archaeology in action.
