Archaeologists such as Matthew Johnson have argued that most, if not all, aspects of archaeology are informed by theoretical considerations
Archaeologists such as Matthew Johnson have argued that most, if not all, aspects of archaeology are informed by theoretical considerations. In his overview of archaeological theory, the archaeologist Matthew Johnson of the University of Southampton put forward four arguments for why theory was so important to the archaeological discipline, and therefore why all archaeologists should learn about the subject.
Johnson does not simply give an excellent introduction to the labyrinth of -isms that comprise contemporary archaeological theory. Matthew Johnson has written a seminal textbook that is destined to become a classic and should become required reading for anyone wanting to become an archaeologist. American Journal of Archaeology.
Matthew Johnson does an admirable and diligent job in attempting to carry his most arduous task. But, as Matthew Johnson shows, this doesn't have to be the case. His book is fulllllll of theory, but he writes in such a way that makes it all interesting and very understandable. I highly recommend this book to all archaeologists who don't get theory, who think they don't need theory or who claim to not even use theory.
