it was amazing
bookshelves: anthropology
Read from October 28 to November 02, 2010

Finally, someone makes theory make sense! This text was very well done. Sofaer explores the value of theory in osteoarchaeology from both past and present persepectives. Incorprating multiple theoretical paradigms, she expertly shows how the body (and biological anthropology) is crucial in archaeology.

This is the one and only time I have read a theory book and thought "yes, exactly!"
