Archaeology has often been put to political use, particularly by nationalists. This timely collection ranges from propaganda purposes served by archaeology in the Nazi state to lesser-known instances of ideological archaeology elsewhere. A distinguished group of international scholars highlights common threads in these experiences, arguing that archaeologists need to be more sophisticated about the use and abuse of their studies. The book raises cogent questions concerning not only archaeology, but also history and anthropology in general.

Critique de chapters.indigo

The editors have brought together a distinguished international group of scholars. Whilst archaeologists will find that this book raises cogent questions about their own work, these problems also go beyond archaeology to implicate history and anthropology more generally.


"This volume is a welcomed and important addition to the recent spate of publications exploring the sociohistorical context of archaeological practice....this is an excellent and important book that should be read and discussed by everyone concerned with understanding the sociohistorical forces shaping archaeological practice and the responsibilities of archaeologists in interpreting and presenting the past. There is much new and provocative material here by an international collection of scholars....the timely well-integrated character of this set of essays, the intellectual seriousness of the endeavor, and the consistently accessible, jargon-light style of the writing certainly ought to assure the volume a prominent place on many graduate and undergraduate syllabi." Michael Dietler, American Anthropologist
