Invention & Reinvention: Perceptions & Archaeological Practice

Hot off the presses…several months ago, and otherwise respectable. This volume that I co-edited is a collection of papers focusing on personal perception and the practice of archaeology; how we archaeologist invent and reinvent aspects of our discipline. Cannibals, fake pyramids, Mel Gibson, and Peter Pan, we’ve got it all. In all honesty, it is a good read.
