Archaeology

Research Strategies in Historical Archeology

Edited by Stanley South

Published 1977 by Academic Press, New York, First Edition. Hardcover with Dust Jacket.

ISBN: 0-12-655760-8

This trailblazing book attempts to renovate and redirect historical archeology by shifting it from a particularistic to a scientific or anthropological foundation, thereby preparing it to take its proper place within anthropology as the study of ourselves. Based on the achievements of the "new archeology," but without the disruptive polemics of that movement, the book's essays apply a large number of methods and techniques--including such familiar ones as statistics, hypothesis testing, and systems theory--to historical data.

Green cloth with gilt lettering on spine and front board, illustrated throughout with graphs, black and white photos, as well as black and white drawings and maps. Dust Jacket in excellent condition. 345 pages, including index.

First systematic comparative study of archaeological data relative to the historic period in North America. Additionally, the book looks beyond the data and comparative material presented to the advancement of archaeological science. Solidly based in the use of empirical data, it does not attempt to go beyond the current state of the field; instead it is concerned with building a sound research foundation for envisioned progress in science.
