    Voor mij was dit een lastig boek om te lezen. Niet zozeer omdat de inhoud zelf lastig was, maar omdat mijn Engels simpelweg te beperkt is. Desondanks zie ik dit boek als een must-read voor archeologiestudenten. Het geeft een duidelijk, beknopte uitleg van de meest gangbare wetenschapstheorieën binnen de archeologie. Die beknoptheid is voor mij tevens het grootste minpunt: het blijft een samenvatting zonder veel diepgang, maar daarmee is het doel van het boek wel bereikt. Het daagt je uit om kri [...]

    Do I feel like I have a firm grip on archaeological theory from reading this book? No, but, that was not the point of the book either, it is an introduction, and a very good one. I now feel ready to get into the heavier archaeological reading. Hodder next.My reading tip for this book: read it from start to finish and with not too many breaks inbetween each part; even if you don't have to read all of it for uni, read all of it anyways! And start to finish, don't skip chapters or jump back an fort [...]

    This is a great overview of archaeological theory. Simply explained, fantastic for those of us who are a bit simple when it comes to theory. So read up and figure out if you're a procesualist or a post-processualist.


    This is a must-have for any Archaeology student. Thought-provoking and easy to understand, it provide a nice introduction to a very complex topic.

    Theory, even at its most benign, most placid or most understandable form, tends to irrevocably scare the living daylights out of most (sane?) people. Theory is often seen as too "elitist", too "academic"or too "specialized" with too great an undeserved emphasis on its own superiority and influence. Its difficult, at certain times, to comprehend or make tangible sense out of theory especially the more obscure or lurid ones. Its a subject that will often make individuals inwardly shudder or groan [...]

    Nicely written! At first theory seems 'boring' to a lot of archaeology students and even to some professional archaeologists. But, as Matthew Johnson shows, this doesn't have to be the case. His book is fulllllll of theory, but he writes in such a way that makes it all interesting and very understandable. I highly recommend this book to all archaeologists who don't get theory, who think they don't need theory or who claim to not even use theory. This book is very convincing! We all use theory, o [...]

    Johnson's book provides a nice overview of archaeological theory. His writing style makes theory comprehensible without unnecessary jargon. There are other books which go into greater detail, but for an introductory text for undergraduate students or a quick review, this book will suffice.

    One of the easiest to understand archaeological theory texts I read.

    Argues convincingly that archaeology does not and cannot exist without theory.
