How to Do Archaeology the Right WayBook - 2016?
Purdy answers the questions "How do archaeologists know where to dig?" and "Why do they excavate a particular site?" and she discusses the months of planning, surveying, mapping, testing, fund raising, and permit acquisition that precede excavation. She also includes information on the rules and regulations governing digs, on artifact analysis, dating, and preservation, and on the ways in which excavation affects the balance of nature.
