Editorial Reviews


Krieger provides a highly accessible account of the active, sometimes fractious interchange between archaeology and philosophy, detailing the fortunes of positivist ideals, the New Archaeology that embraced them, and the post-positivist models of research practice that have taken shape in archaeology and in philosophy of science in the last 30 years.... Archaeologists and philosophers both stand to benefit from the intellectual partnership that Krieger details, particularly when the scope of the archaeological discussion is expanded to include the rich and diverse research traditions he considers. (Alison Wylie)
