How to do archaeology in the field. This is a very good handbook used to teach how to do it. The STAA uses it at their field schools

The Southern Texas Archeology Association is one of the most active in the country. They go out and work in the field or the lab almost every other weekend. They also have a field school in March. This is the handbook they use. Just about everything an new archaeologist needs to know how to do. Written in plain English. A good classroom resource for the subject!! I highly recommend it.
