While students can only truly learn field techniques from actually participating in a dig, this CD does the next best thing: It shows archaeologists involved in various excavations (many of which are referenced in the Thomas/Kelly text), illustrates field techniques, reinforces concepts via live examples, and encourages students to participate in a dig themselves. Organized by the various stages of a live excavation, students can progress through each illustrated step automatically or navigate to a specific point on their own. At the end of each step, students are directed to Check Points, which test their understanding with concept questions and allow them to self-check their answers, receive a score, and email that score to their instructors.

David Hurst Thomas has served as Curator of Anthropology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City since 1972. A specialist in Native American archaeology, Thomas discovered both Gatecliff Shelter (Nevada) and the lost 16th- and 17th-century Franciscan mission Santa Catalina de Guale on St. Catherine's Island, Georgia. He has led the long-term excavation of Mission San Marcos near Santa Fe (New Mexico) and recently returned to St. Catherine's Island for long-term archaeological exploration. A founding trustee of the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian since 1989, Thomas has published extensively. His works include 100 papers and 30 books -- most recently, the bestselling Skull Wars: Kennewick Man, Archaeology, and The Battle for Native American Identity. Archaeologist Thomas likes "old stuff," including his 1961 Corvette, his 130-year-old house, and the Oakland Raiders.
