Saffron Books EAP Discount
- From Concepts of the Past to Practical Strategies: The Teaching of Archaeological Field Techniques, edited by Peter Ucko, Jane Hubert and Qin Ling (2007)This book is the first to undertake a comparative assessment of how excavation and fieldwork techniques are taught to university students in many different parts of the world. It is the result of a three-day international conference held by the International Centre for Chinese Heritage and Archaeology (ICCHA) in Beijing in 2006. Contributors from Africa, Australia, India, Southeast Asia, South and North America and Europe present strong arguments on the core theme, concepts of the past, and describe fieldwork practices and teaching in their own countries.This is a ground-breaking work both in its theoretical breadth and range of practical information.
From Concepts of the Past to Practical Strategies: The Teaching of Archaeological Field Techniques, is now available to UCL students at the discounted rate of £10 (RRP £49.95)
To take advantage of this very generous offer from the publisher you can either reserve a copy for collection (payment by cash) at a forthcoming ICCHA China Night Lecture or by going to the publisher’s office (payment by cash or credit card, not cheque) to buy one. In either event, you should in the first instance contact the publisher directly (email@example.com).
