Anthropology and Archaeology

Research guide to sources in Anthropology and Archaeology

General Background Information

Scholarly Encyclopedias, though basic in nature, can provide useful background and context. They also often include bibliographies listing some of the major sources related to a topic.

There are many more encyclopedias and other reference sources (online and in print) that may be appropriate, depending on your topic -- See our Reference Materials page for help finding sources.

Gale Virtual Reference Library and Oxford Reference Online search multiple subject encyclopedias simultaneously.
