An Introduction to Classical Archaeology
This modern introduction to classical archaeology provides a concise overview of this area of study and its practical methods.
The geographical and temporal framework for studying Antiquity is outlined and the archaeological find categories are explained. The main focus, however, is teaching archaeological methods via case studies. Students will learn to develop knowledge-based questions about archaeological finds and findings and they will become familiar with the relationship between written sources and material evidence. In addition, they will acquire knowledge of how archaeological objects are chronologically located, formally analyzed, sorted by type, and contextualized. This up-to-date textbook also teaches basic knowledge of iconography and iconology, as well as discourse analysis and reception analysis of archaeological objects. Throughout the text, there is an emphasis on using the correct technical terminology, which is also consistently explained in a clear and accessible manner via concrete examples.
