Book Review: The Archaeology of Bruce Trigger
Lovely to see the work of such an important contributor to archaeology (and Egyptology) honoured by his peers: "Indiana Jones's adventures in archaeology had nothing on McGill Professor Bruce Trigger's, whose achievements were celebrated recently with the launch by McGill-Queen's University Press of The Archaeology of Bruce Trigger. Armed with his keen intellect and theoretical empiricism, Trigger, in a career spanning almost 50 years, didn't need a bullwhip or the Raiders of the Lost Ark to make his mark on how archaeology is practiced around the world.
The book, edited by Ronald F. Williamson and Michael S. Bisson, contains articles written by an international Who's Who of archaeologists outlining Trigger's influence. It originated in a 2004 symposium at the Annual Meeting of the Society of American Archaeology."
