Scrutinizing, in detail, the relationship between archaeology, heritage and the public, this much-needed volume explores public interest and participation in archaeology as a subject worthy of academic attention in its own right.

Examining case studies from throughout the world; from North America, Britain, Egypt and Brazil to East Africa, China and beyond, Nick Merriman focuses on two key areas: communication and interpretation, and stakeholders.

Constant reports of new discoveries, protests over the destruction of sites and debates over the return of artefacts such as the Elgin marbles or indigenous remains testify to an increasing public interest in archaeology.

For students and scholars of this archaeology, and of its relationship with the public, this will prove essential reading.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'It is encouraging to find so much clear writing - and thought- in a book devoted to public understanding ... this will be a fascinating, educational and provocative read, as well as valuable resource.' - British Archaeology

'This book fills the gap in archaeological literature ... The contents are both intellectually engaging, and of practical use ... The different essays are all well-written and informative, and the evidence, information, and discussions clearly presented ... I recommend it highly, and believe it is a must read for anyone interested or involved with cultural research managment.' - www.PalArchh.nl
