Summary
  • Starting with voyages of discovery in the 16th and 17th centuries and continuing through to the present, when the material world is represented on the Internet, this volume reveals a critical dimension of historical archaeology
  • "Starting with voyages of discovery in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and continuing through to the present - when the material world is represented on the Internet - the author of Archaeology and the Modern World reveals a crucial dimension of historical archaeology that lies beyond words." "The focus is on two areas - the Chesapeake (Virginia and Maryland, USA) and the Cape region of Africa. Past colonial societies of these areas relied heavily on slave labour and there was little if any direct contact between them. Yet, as Martin Hall observes, there were marked similarities in the ways the people created and used the material around them. It is these comparisons that the author uses as a measure for evaluating the major theoretical traditions in historical archaeology."--BOOK JACKET
