'Very simply, Renfrew & Bahn is the book that we recommend to all our students as the 'if you are going to buy only one book, this is the book you need to buy'. We would expect all of our students to use it, and it is recommended for a range of first and second year modules, both core and optional. Quite simply, it is the best textbook.'
Dr Mark Pearce, University of Nottingham
'It is invaluable in its breadth of coverage of the discipline'
Professor Paul Halstead, University of Sheffield
'With abundant helpful illustrations and suggestions for further reading, this book remains an invaluable introduction to the world of archaeology'
