A wonderful introduction to archaeology and archaeological techniques...Recommended. * CHOICE, Vol. 50 No. 5 *

This fine book presents the most recent data about an important set of archaeological sites in British Columbia, exploring both the fascinating history of a people and the scientific process of investigating that ancient past. It does this with great clarity, which makes it a pleasure to read.
