Item description for Encyclopedia of Historical Archaeology by Charles E. Orser Jnr...
This is a compendium of information about the ever-growing field of historical archaeology. Historical archaeology is an inherently interesting field because it can be defined in two, somewhat distinct, ways. It can be defined as the archaeological investigation of any past culture that has developed a literate tradition; or it can be viewed as the study of the modern world, the historical and cultural conditions that have shaped our world since the 1400s.
