Stewart (anthropology, Temple U.) introduces field methods and the decision-making process for choosing methods in the textbook. Chapters cover basic definitions and assumptions; the recognition of evidence; fieldwork motivations and design; background research; field preparation; maps and surveying; sediments, soils, stratigraphy, and geomorphology; surface and subsurface investigations; and training and professional practice. Because of Stewart's background experience the work will be most relevant to those working in North America on deposits related to Native Americans.

Wet Site Archaeology identifies the characteristics common to all archaeological wet sites, from Newfoundland to Chile, Polynesia to Florida and from the Late Pleistoscene to the twentieth century. The rewards and responsibilities of recovering unique assemblages from water-saturated deposits are explored. The book discusses topics including innovative excavation and preservation methods; expanded knowledge of past environments, subsistence technologies, artistic expression, skeletal structure and pathologies; and how to determine when enough of a wet site has been sampled. Herculaneum, Hoko River, Hontoon Island, Key Marco, Monte Verde, Ozette, the Somerset levels, Windover, the bog bodies of Northern Europe and the lake dwellers of Switzerland are some of the many famous sites and discoveries described in the this volume.
