Sample text

This book is shorter than its predecessor, the second edition, but still addresses the broad scope of archaeological research in the Southwest. We concentrate on exploring how archaeologists learn about the past, how they "know what they know," rather than on presenting a catalogue of discoveries or an index of important archaeological sites. This is not an encyclopedia. Rather, it is a discussion of ideas about the past and the kinds of evidence that support them. As in the previous editions, we provide background information in the first three chapters and follow with chapters arranged in the chronological order of the archaeological record from earliest remains to the most recent.
