Digging It Up Down Under
Digg^f^g it up Down Under is the first book in a new series of Global Cultural Heritage Manuals being published by Springer. The aim of this series is to provide the essential information needed to conduct archaeological fieldwork in various parts of the world. This series of hands-on field manuals have been written for both undergraduate and graduate students, and for emerging professionals. Each book constitutes a step-by-step guide to undertaking and successfully completing cultural heritage fieldwork in a particular country or region. The Global Cultural Heritage Manuals Series fills the need for a cohesive series of regional field manuals for archaeologists. While there are a number of useful books that provide an introduction to archaeological techniques, these books tend to focus primarily on conditions in North America or Britain, and this makes them of limited value to archaeologists working in other parts of the world. The Global Cultural Heritage Manuals Series fills this gap, not only through providing information specifically crafted to the ethical, legislative and environ mental conditions of each region or country, but also by providing the detailed advice on the complex process of undertaking archaeological fieldwork in dif ferent parts of the world. The books in this series are structured so they guide practitioners through the entire archaeological process, from research design and obtaining funding, visas and permissions, to site recording, analysis, report writing and other forms of publication.
First in a practical series of manuals – each targeted to a specific region of the worldSeries is published in conjunction with the World Archaeological Congress – one of the few truly international archaeological bodies in the world
