Discovering Our Past: A History of the World brings the sweep of historical events into focus as people, issues and events come to life for today s students. The program includes a strong emphasis on building vocabulary as well as tools for developing strong reading skills. The print student edition is aligned to the revised NCSS/Thematic Strands and Common Core State standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies. The program focuses on critical concepts through Big Ideals, Essential Questions and Enduring Understandings.
This introductory text surveys the techniques, methods and theoretical frameworks of contemporary archaeology. Coverage of method and theory resides in the context of an ideal research plan to explain what archaeologists do, how they conduct research, and how they use the results to construct our past. Integration of traditional and recent innovative approaches to archaeology provides a balanced scientific and humanistic perspective.
This brief, inexpensive introduction to the techniques, methods, and theoretical frameworks of contemporary archaeology follows the same organizing principle as the text Archaeology: Discovering Our Past but features less detail. Archaeological methods and theory are covered comprehensively--at a reasonable level of detail--in under 300 pages. Illustrative examples and case studies present a temporal and geographic balance of both Old and New World sites. Abundant student aids include maps of archaeological areas, extensive illustrations, chapter introductions and summaries, a guide to further reading at the end of each chapter, a glossary, a bibliography, and an index.
