Matthew Johnson

Paperback, 307p (Blackwell 1999, 2nd ed 2010)

What are the differences between processual and postprocessual archaeology? What is cognitive archaeology? Matthew Johnson provides a jargon-free guide to the theory, practice and intellectual context of archaeology, exploring and explaining the roots of debates (new and old) within the discipline. Including New Archaeology, Middle-range theory, ethnoarchaeology, postprocessualism, feminism, poststructuralism, and relatively new terminologies such as 'phenomenology'. An instructive guide for students embarking on archaeology and for those who need to refresh their memories on current thinking and terminology. The second edition, is, as befits a constantly changing field, completely updated, with expanded sections on evolutionary theory and on culture-historical archaeology. An updated conclusion outlines possible future directions for the field.
