Summary
Long out of print, this highly acclaimed book is available again with a new preface and afterword for a new generation of readers. Published in 1963 when historical archaeology was in its infancy. Here Lies Virginia details the archaeology and excavation of Roanke Island, Jamestown, Williamsburg, and Yorktown, Virginia. Combining artifacts and written records, Ivor Noël Hume discusses the changes that have taken place in the field of historical archaeology since the book was first published thirty years ago. He uncovers both the advantages and the shortcomings of computer technology in archaeology as well as problems caused by the separation of artifact studies from archaeological site interpretation, This first paperback edition will bring back into print a treasury of the archaeological history of Virginia.
