  • "Entries are well illustrated with colour photographs, diagrams, plans, graphs and tables, and each is concluded with cross-references and generous, up-to-dare bibliographies divided into text references and further reading. … The involvement of more than the usual English-language cohort of contributors definitely gives this encyclopedia a special character and strengthens its international credentials. … It is particularly strong on cultural relevance and issues of contemporary concern such as ethics and repatriation … ."

    Chris Scarre and Robert Witcher, Antiquity, Vol. 89 (343), February, 2015
  • "It can be continually updated as new information comes to light, supplementing the printed set, and giving it the opportunity to become, perhaps, the definitive reference work in the field of archaeology. … It is an ideal resource for academics and scholars and should be recommended to anyone studying the discipline of archaeology."

    Louise Ellis-Barrett, Reference Reviews, Vol. 29 (1), 2015
