BBC Recommends Routledge To Help You Start Digging

Archaeology the Basics

BBC History have been putting together a list of titles to help people who want to dig deeper into archaeology get started. This list features not one, not two, but three Routledge books. You can read the full list of books selected here.

Three Routledge books have been included in BBC History's list of books to help give a better understanding of archaeology.

The second edition of Archaeology: The Basics has been revised to reflect growth in areas such as material culture, human evolution and the political use of the past. A piece of broken pottery will never seem the same again after this lively and engaging text.

Archaeology: An Introduction is now in its fifth edition. In addition to drawing upon examples and case studies from many regions of the world and periods of the past, it incorporates the authors' own fieldwork, research and teaching and features a new four-color text design and color illustrations plus an additional 50 topic boxes.

The Archaeology of Britain is the only concise and up-to-date introduction to the archaeological record of Britain from the reoccupation of the landmass by Homo sapiens during the later stages of the most recent Ice Age until last century. This fully revised second edition extends its coverage, including greater detail on the first millennium AD beyond the Anglo-Saxon domain, and into recent times to look at the archaeological record produced by Britain’s central role in two World Wars and the Cold War.
