ABSTRACT
States that technical innovations and a renewed focus on evolutionary theory will lead to a better archaeology in the 21st century. Predicted focus on microartifacts; Recognition that archaeology record is produced not just by human activity but by a variety of causes called formation processes; Redefinition of the evolutionary theory through the reworking of the concept of culture as a trait transmission process; Use of photogrammetry and more advanced remote sensing technologies.
