The greatness of America is right under our feet. The American past—the people, battles, industry and homes—can be found not only in libraries and museums, but also in hundreds of archaeological sites that scientists investigate with great care. These sites are not in distant lands, accessible only by research scientists, but nearby—almost every locale possesses a parcel of land worthy of archaeological exploration. Archaeology in America is the first resource that provides students, researchers, and anyone interested in their local history with a survey of the most important archaeological discoveries in North America. Leading scholars, most with an intimate knowledge of the area, have written in-depth essays on over 300 of the most important archaeological sites that explain the importance of the site, the history of the people who left the artifacts, and the nature of the ongoing research. Archaeology in America divides it coverage into 8 regions: the Arctic and Subarctic, the Great Basin and Plateau, the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains, the Midwest, the Northeast, the Southeast, the Southwest, and the West Coast. Each entry provides readers with an accessible overview of the archaeological site as well as books and articles for further research.

This volume assembles some of the contributions to the first two annual meetings of the Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory ('CHAT') conferences, held at Bristol University in November 2003 and Leicester University in November 2004. Bringing together a wide range of archaeological practitioners from higher education and from professional archaeology, these contributions explore the potential of archaeological studies of the recent and contemporary past from a range of perspectives. Included are studies that focus on a range of themes, from colonialism and conflict to heritage, performance and practice - from a range of different perspectives. Whilst diverse they are united by an awareness of archaeology as a contemporary practice, and of the radical potential for the extension of archaeological perspectives into the recent past and the contemporary world.
