Barbara J. Little’s most popular book is Historical Archaeology: Why the Past Matters.

Barbara J.

What is historical archaeology and why is it important? Well-known archaeologist Barbara Little addresses these key questions for introductory students in this concise, inexpensive, and well-written text. Little covers the goals of historical archaeological work, the kinds of questions it asks, and the ethical and political concerns it raises. She shows what historical archaeology can provide that neither of its parent disciplines can offer alone. Little offers brief snapshots of key American sites: Jamestown, Mission San Luis, West Oakland, the African American Burial Ground, and the Garbage.

Barbara Little is a historical archaeologist with a long history of federal archaeological service and teaching. If you're a history or anthropology student (or even if you just have an interest in the field) you should give this book a read. It's relatively short but an easy read packed with critical information for history and anthropology students. I find that it does a very accurate job explaining anthropology; while what we do isn't Indiana Jones, it is meaningful and satisfying.

Well-known archaeologist Barbara Little addresses these key questions for introductory students in this concise, inexpensive, and well-written text. Little covers the goals of historical archaeological work, the kinds of questions it asks, and the ethical and political concerns it raises. She shows what historical archaeology can provide that neither of its parent disciplines can offer alone. Little offers brief snapshots of key American sites: Jamestown, Mission San Luis, West Oakland, the African American Burial Ground, and the Garbage Project, among others. And she shows how historical archaeology is inextricably linked to public education, justice issues, and our collective understanding of the past. As an introductory guide for historical archaeology and similar courses, or as thought-provoking reading for professionals, this volume is unmatched in quality and scope.

A good introduction to the discipline that is divided into many short chapters, which students seem to like these days.
