This is a book intended to answer some of the many questions that people ask archaeologists such as:How do you know? and What is it?. The author, Jennifer Laing, is an experienced freelance lecturer who has written many books and organised many field trips, and is therefore no stranger to such questions. The text has been presented in an easy-to-understand question and answer format. There are chapters covering the history of archaeology and its founders, but the book also explains the current views and thinking of those presently employed within the field. The practical side of archaeology is also well-represented with topics being covered such as the finding of sites, how to date them, and excavation techniques. Dealing with virtually every aspect of archaeology, this book will appeal to all those interested in the subject, including those about to study it at university.

Chapter headings: First things first - What is Archaeology? - What is an archaeologist? - Practical Matters - The Law - Who invented archaeology? - Jargon debunked - Identifying objects - Places - People - Have there ever been important breakthroughs? - Does it ever go wrong? - What_x0019_s it matter anyway? They are all dead - How can I get involved? - A case history
