R.E.M. Wheeler's Archaeology from the Earth has long been recognized as a classic. Both for its passionate statement concerning the purpose of archaeology and the lucid and methodical exposition of the techniques of excavation, this volume still remains unmatched. Although there has been an explosion of forensic techniques in the recovery and analysis of various kinds of archaeological data since then, there cannot be a better introduction to the actual task of excavation than what Wheeler wrote on the basis of his British and Indian experience.
