Schuyler’s "Guide to Substantive and Theoretical Contributions"—Then and Now

Author(s): Meta F. Janowitz

Year: 2017

Summary

Robert Schuyler’s Historical Archaeology: A Guide to Substantive and Theoretical Contributions was first published in 1978 and is now in its fifth printing. The Guide was the first work to gather together some of the most important founding documents of the relatively new field of historical archaeology and is still in use in undergraduate and graduate courses today. This paper will review the themes of that volume, as selected and edited by Dr. Schuyler, and will discuss how the ideas put forth in the "future trends" section have developed over the past thirty-nine years.
