This controversial book is a survey of how relationships between indigenous peoples and the archaeological establishment have got into difficulty, and a crucial pointer to how to move forward from this point. With lucid appraisals of key debates such as NAGPRA, Kennewick and the repatriation of Tasmanian artefacts, Laurajane Smith dissects the nature and consequences of this clash of cultures. Smith explores how indigenous communities in the USA and Australia have confronted the pre-eminence of archaeological theory and discourse in the way the material remains of their past are cared for and controlled, and how this has challenged traditional archaeological thought and practice. Essential reading for all those concerned with developing a just and equal dialogue between the two parties, and the role of archaeology in the research and management of their heritage.

Fragmentation In Archaeology

Fragmentation in Archaeology revolutionises archaeological studies of material culture, by arguing that the deliberate physical fragmentation of objects, and their (often structured) deposition, lies at the core of the archaeology of the Mesolithic, Neolithic and Copper Age of Central and Eastern Europe. John Chapman draws on detailed evidence from the Balkans to explain such phenomena as the mass sherd deposition in pits and the wealth of artefacts found in the Varna cemetery to place the significance of fragmentation within a broad anthropological context.

Margarita Diaz-Andreu offers an innovative history of archaeology during the nineteenth century, encompassing all its fields from the origins of humanity to the medieval period, and all areas of the world. The development of archaeology is placed within the framework of contemporary political events, with a particular focus upon the ideologies of nationalism and imperialism. Diaz-Andreu examines a wide range of issues, including the creation of institutions, the conversion of thestudy of antiquities into a profession, public memory, changes in archaeological thought and practice, and the effect on archaeology of racism, religion, the belief in progress, hegemony, and resistance.

"Primarily, this is not a book about the Bronze Age. Rather, this study is the product of a strong ambition to form a better understanding of the ways in which interpretations of a particular prehistoric period are formed. Nevertheless, it is the result of a long-term aspiration to understand the dynamic relations between people, landscape and material culture of the Bronze Age in southern Scandinavia. It is also the product of a desire to investigate the possibilities of analyzing a local Bronze Age landscape from a social practice perspective. Furthermore, the study stems from a desire to discuss what sort of an archaeological knowledge our theoretical perspectives produce - and how that knowledge is used in our present society. Contents include: Introduction, Social Theory and Archaeology, People as embodied agents, Material culture - as objectified practice, Research Context, Landscape archaeology, Social Archaeology - understanding Bronze Age social reproduction, Archaeology and the construction of a European cultural heritage - today's Bronze Age, A Structuration of Life and Landscape - The Bronze Age in Stora Kopinge, Settlements and structuration, Materialization of memory and communication in the landscape, Another Bronze Age?"
