Product Description


"Historical archaeology was created through studies of early Americana by James Deetz and several others. Its primary emphasis on written records of 'historical' periods when Europeans encountered Native people bears a distinctly elitist 'Eurocentric hegemony of reference' that Reid, Lane, and their collaborators challenge in this exceptional collection of essays. Highly recommended." (Social and Behavioral Sciences, 41: 10) "This interesting and varied collection of essays on aspects of historical archaeology in Africa presents recent work all over the continent.(Carmel Schrire; Journal of Anthropological Research, 60: 2004) "Reid & Lane attempt not only to give Africa a place within historical archaeology but also to redefine the subdiscipline in a way that enables African examples to be better understood. They seek to achieve this through a realisation of the temporality of all archaeology and of the material continuity between the past and the present. Thus the volume reinterprets histoircal archaeology variously, wisely avoiding a generalising definition of the subject matter." (Stephanie Wynne-Jones, Antiquity) --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
