Papers presented at the Cities in the World conference held at Southampton University and organised through the Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology challenged the commonly held perception that cities are about the present and the future, not about the past. All cities have an innate sense of the past, and this volume, encompassing as it does cities of the world, explores this sense of history. Archaeological approaches to understanding cities will contribute towards recognising the changes in urbanism throughout the last 500 years. This volume contains over twenty contributions spread across geographical contexts, taking us on a tour of cities from Africa to Europe via North America, Australia and India. The essays discuss the extent to which a city can be defined by its archaeological remains and how the stories of its past inhabitants can be illuminated through the material culture thereby discovered.
