Stanley South has been a leading figure not only in historical archaeology but also in anthropological archaeology. His work (both past and present) has put him in the forefront of monumental changes in American archaeology in the last 40 years. His personal perseverance in field archaeology has also been an inspiration to new and burgeoning archaeologists and anthropologists. An Archaeological Evolution is a personal recounting of his life, played out among some of the most important debates and movements in archaeology starting in the 1960s up to the 21st century. This seminal volume will be of interest to archaeologists (both professional and academic), anthropologists, historians, and conservators in or studying the United States, but also wherever archaeology is taught and practiced.
