Barry Cunliffe, Wendy Davies, Colin Renfrew.
Archaeology: the Widening Debate.
OUP. 2002

Twenty-six leading scholars from around the world have come together to celebrate the strengths, the energies and the sheer intellectual excitement of their discipline. They unashamedly proclaim that over the last hundred years archaeology has transformed itself from a genteel antiquarian pursuit, deeply rooted in the classical tradition, to a rigorous and demanding discipline, spanning the humanities and the sciences, yet at the same time one widely accessible to the public at large.

The contributors show how our understanding of the past has changed, reveal the exciting ideas under current debate, and offer their visions of the future.

The result is a remarkable overview of world archaeology, focusing on new and unexpected themes at the cutting edge of the discipline.
