 Archaeology & you Minimize

By George E. Stuart & Francis P. McManamon

This booklet is about archaeology and you. It is designed to provide you with basic information about the science of archaeology, along with advice on how you can learn more and, if you wish, actually take part in it. A selection of specialized books, magazines, and films appears in the appendix, which also identifies sites and museums you can visit. In addition, there are suggestions for those who might like to volunteer for excavation or other archaeological work.

Finally, this booklet suggests some steps and guidelines for those of you interested in dedicating yourselves to any of many different professional careers in archaeology or to an avocation in this uniquely rewarding field.
