Review:

"In this exciting and interpretively timely volume, archaeology and social theory intersect to explore the materialization of memory. Drawing on diverse case studies, from historical and prehistoric contexts across the globe, contributors expand dimensions for critical understandings of 'the past in the past." Wendy Ashmore, University of California, Riverside


"Memory is a locus of struggle over identity, authority, and power. This collection represents the first serious attempt in archaeology to examine this struggle. As such, it is a path-breaking volume that all archaeologists need to read and contemplate." Randy McGuire, Binghamton University


"The distinguished editors, an anthropological archaeologist and a Classical Greek archaeologist, have gathered a formidable team to explore memorizations over a vast span of time, space, and cultures, from the Old World to the New, and from prehistory right up to the present." Paul Cartledge, University of Cambridge

"This is an excellent book which acheives what it sets out to do - to place memory more firmly on the research agenda of contemporary archaeology." Journal of Field Archaeology, Vol. 29, 2002-2004

From the Back Cover:

As in the present, past peoples commemorated, constructed, and manipulated their past for their own social and political ends. Archaeologists can use a variety of evidence to study social memory and to recover past ideas about what the more distant past was like. Archaeologies of Memory is a groundbreaking text that presents a coherent framework for the study of memory in past societies.

This unique collection of new essays brings together contributions from both anthropological and classical archaeologists. Essays, drawn from a variety of cultures and time periods, engage a number of common themes, such as issues of authority and identity, and the role memory plays in their creation and transformation. Archaeologies of Memory is an accessible investigation into the central issues in the study of memory and provides an engaging introduction to this controversial subject.
