    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Perspectives on the Past shows how knowledge of the past is contingent and is largely determined by the social and intellectual milieu in which those who study it have received their training. In the original essays that comprise the volume, field archaeologists discuss their own biases and the effects these biases have on how they do their research on hunter-gatherers in the Mediterranean.

    Reviews

    "The contents of this volume suggest that, rather than threatening the practice of prehistory, the avenues opened up by the postprocessualists are of relevance to the concerns of active prehistorians."--American Anthropology "Clark provides a clear discussion of some of the crucial issues separating these two camps."--American Antiquity "The idea behind this book is excellent-to explore the areas of overlap and disagreement between different research paradigms that can roughly be divided into indigenous and intrusive."--Journal of Field Archaeology
