Archaeology of Early Buddhism by Lars Fogelin
The book mainly looks at one Buddhist site in particular and has pictures, maps, and diagrams to help show what they are discussing in the text. This withdrawal from regular interaction with the laity led to the collapse of Buddhism in India in the early-to-mid 2nd millennium CE. In contrast to the ever-changing religious practices of the Buddhist sangha, the Buddhist laity were more conservative--maintaining their religious practices for almost two millennia, even as they nominally shifted their allegiances to rival religious orders.
This book also serves as an exemplar for the archaeological study of long-term religious change through the perspectives of practice theory, materiality, and semiotics. Fogelin's historical judgments are revisionary and refreshing. Highly recommended.
