"A useful summary of the historical development of many of the main
dating methods currently in use in North America."
—CHOICE "Revealing in a non-tedious way how the most commonly used dating techniques in North American archaeology have affected the interpretations of indigenous peoples. The volume is a valuable addition to the growing number of treatises in the history of North American archaeology."
—Journal of Middle Atlantic Archaeology "Writing for the uninitiated is not something that most of us are good at, and it is the sign of a good editor...that he or she can sand the rough spots, fill in the low spots, and produce a readable, and enjoyable, edited book. I recommend it as a text at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, especially in classes that focus on archaeological method, and as a book that should be rad from time to time by all archaeologists."
