Interesting and a good textbook but the same old ego driven Binford.

In pursuit of the past: Decoding the archaeological record. by. Lewis Roberts Binford (Author). Interesting and a good textbook but the same old ego driven Binford.

Many consider Lewis Binford to be the single most influential figure in archaeology in the last half-century

The most attractive quality of the book remains its ease of reading, it reads just like a fascinating lecture, which, in fact, it was. The book can easily be read over the course of a weekend, or an especially long plane ride. What one will get from the volume depends greatly on what one brings to the volume. The best portion stands as the superlative and unsurpassed ethnoarchaeological work in Northern Alaska, the worst as a very weak discussion of sociocultural evolution.

Many consider Lewis Binford to be the single most influential figure in archaeology in the last half-century. His contributions to the New Archaeology changed the course of the field as he argued for the development of a scientifically rigorous framework to guide the excavation and interpretation of the archaeological record. What has happened since the publication of Part III of In Pursuit of the Past? There is absolutely no doubt that a great deal of knowledge has been accumulated of the archaeological record during critical time periods and from critical locations where major changes occurred.

Interesting and a good textbook but the same old ego driven Binford. Once you have read one book by Binford, you pretty much have read them all.

Excellent pre-processal archaeological treatment of early humanoids. Most amusing to learn that leopards use to pull humanoids into the trees to eat them. So much for herding cats.

This book was cheap and came quickly. It was much cheaper than traveling for it. This book is a basic staple for my library

An entertaining, even relaxed and conversational, read. It recovers some the intellectual history of archaeological theory, albeit not in the most unbiased manner. The most attractive quality of the book remains its ease of reading, it reads just like a fascinating lecture, which, in fact, it was. The book can easily be read over the course of a weekend, or an especially long plane ride.
What one will get from the volume depends greatly on what one brings to the volume. The best portion stands as the superlative and unsurpassed ethnoarchaeological work in Northern Alaska, the worst as a very weak discussion of sociocultural evolution.

Still, warts and all, it's a valuable read to anyone vaguely interested in archaeology or in the evolutionary development of human culture, which may or may not be an adaptive system relative to its environment.
