Reviews

From the reviews: "Smith and Burke have produced an interesting and engaging introduction to doing archaeology in Australia, not just in terms of procedure, but also its historical, ethical, and social contexts. And the authors do so in a way that not only addresses the needs of professional archaeologists, but also, through the scope and style of the volume, makes a great deal of information accessible to students, Indigenous communities, heritage managers, and non-government organisations ... ." (George Nicholas, Australian Archaeology, Vol. 68, June, 2009) Digging It Up Down Under often reads like an archaeologist's edition of The Rough Guide to Australia... This volume clearly provides the local knowledge necessary to prepare any archaeologist (or student, or volunteer) for a field season or job in the Land Down Under...the greatest appeal of this volume is its potential to help further engage archaeologists -- no matter where they work - in cross-cultural discussions about their roles as cultural heritage managers. (Lynda Carroll, Historical Archaeology 44:2 Spring 2010)
