Summary: Seeking Our Past: An Introduction to North American Archaeology offers an up-to-date and engaging introduction to North America's past that also illustrates contemporary archaeological practice. The authors include examples from both North American prehistory and history--drawn from academicarchaeology and Cultural Resource Management (CRM)--in order to provide a broad overview of how the continent was settled, what ...archaeologists have learned about life across the North American culture areas, and how current archaeologists research our past. Chapters are enhanced by case studieswritten especially for this book by the original researchers. Through these case studies readers gain familiarity with particular projects and insight into what archaeologists actually do. In addition, the authors cover such important ethical issues as respecting and working with descendantpopulations and the need for archaeological stewardship. They also provide valuable information about contemporary practice and careers in archaeology. An exceptional resource, Seeking Our Past incorporates numerous pedagogical aids including: * Three types of text boxes: "Faces in Archaeology" offer profiles of working archaeologists; "Issues and Debates" address ethical concerns and scholarly debates; and "Clues to the Past" examine specific artifacts or features in detail * Maps of regions and cultures discussed in the text * Chapter summaries featuring bulleted lists of major points * Suggested reading lists at the end of each chapter and discussion questions after each case study * An extensive glossary * An Instructor's Manual, available to adopters * Student CD including additional sections; more case studies, "Issues and Debates" boxes, and "Faces in Archaeology" profiles; full-color illustrations; a complete list of references; a study guide (with questions and quizzes); and an "Exploring Further" section with links to related websites andrecommendations of sites and museums to visit
