Philadelphia and the Development of Americanist Archaeology
"Philadelphia and the Development of Americanist
Archaeology" reveals the crucial role the intellectuals and
institutions of Philadelphia played in the development of the
science of archaeology. The ten essays in this volume focus on
Philadelphians who were concerned with Americanist archaeology, or
the "archaeology of the New World."
