Product description


This text establishes a research strategy for the archaeology of the European town. Digging, the author maintains, is now becoming part of the problem in heritage management in towns, rather than the solution. The research agenda put forward here is based on the idea that towns record - in the form of layers of earth, demolished buildings and domestic refuse - long sequences of political choice. The five chapters of the book are based on the 1990 Dalrymple lectures at the University of Glasgow. The text includes substantial summaries in French, German and Italian.
