Excellent introduction for non-scientists Jun 20, 2007
This is an excellent book for non-scientists. I am not attempting to belittle archaeologists, but most haven't taken the math to understand geophysics at a fundamental level. They are most interested in applying geophysics as a tool to assist in their work for which this book will be an asset. I have also read the books by Gaffney and Clark which are good introductions. This book actually has some math in it, which is a good thing. The book grew out of the geophysics for non science majors that Witten taught at the University of Oklahoma which was a quite popular course. I recommend it for any archaeologist or non-scientist who is interested in geophysics.
