Retaining its position as the most authoritative introduction to archaeology, written by renowned archaeologists Colin Renfrew and Paul Bahn, this Eighth Edition of Archaeology: Theories, Methods, and Practice is even more engaging, with greater coverage of indigenous archaeology and pioneering women in the discipline. Also new to this edition is InQuizitive for Archaeology, an easy-to-use adaptive learning tool that helps students master key concepts and come to class better prepared.
Colin Renfrew is Disney Professor Emeritus of Archaeology and former Director of the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research at the University of Cambridge. He is the author and editor of many books, including Before Civilization, Archaeology and Language, and Prehistory and coeditor (with Paul Bahn) of The Cambridge World Prehistory. He is a fellow of the British Academy and a life peer in the House of Lords.
Paul Bahn is co-author of Thames & Hudson’s hugely influential and bestselling textbook Archaeology: Theories, Methods and Practice, and has also published a variety of popular books, including Easter Island: Earth Island (with John Flenley), Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age (with Adrian Lister), and Images of the Ice Age, widely regarded as the standard introduction to cave art.
