Unlike most textbooks on heritage which discuss the creation of
heritage as a cultural phenomenon or offer practical guides to
heritage practices, Archaeology and Heritage takes a fresh approach
by providing an introduction to themes in the field of heritage as
it relates to the material legacy of our past. A survey of current
approaches to theorizing archaeological practice presents some
ideas about how we understand and relate to the remains, sites,
structures and buildings that have come to our present from the
past.The book is divided into seven chapters, each preceded by a
short interlude which considers the types of literature and ways of
talking about heritage which characterize that approach. For those
not already acquainted with recent archaeological theory, the book
provides a brief introduction to current trends. Each chapter is in
turn divided into key points indicated by sub-headings, and these
key points are reiterated at the end of each chapter and are
followed by a list of suggested readings.
