structuralism and archeology

Hello for all

I´m looking for good references about 'structuralism', and also the
relations of structuralism and the 'archaeological period' of Foucault

(i´m sorry for my english :D

Lista de Discussão: Foucault, Deleuze, Guattari:
"Uma teoria é como uma caixa de ferramentas. Nada tem a ver com o
significante... É preciso que sirva, é preciso que funcione. E não para si
mesma. (...) Não se refaz uma teoria, fazem-se outras; há outras a serem
feitas. É curioso que seja (...) Proust, que o tenha dito tão claramente:
tratem meus livros como óculos dirigidos para fora e se eles não lhes
servem, consigam outros, encontrem vocês mesmos seu instrumento, que é
forçosamente um instrumento de combate." Gilles Deleuze
