[This text] focuses on the way archaeologists find and recover data from archaeological sites and materials. [The text] tries to convey a feeling for the research process, but ... is focused on a particular issue or controversy rather than a method.

[It also] includes two autobiographical articles. [In the text, the editors] hope you will come to appreciate that archaeology is not just an unemotional set of methods and data, but rather a bunch of hard-working, insightful people who employ those methods to answer particular questions about the past.--Preface
