Archaeologies of the Contemporary Past
Archaeologies of the Contemporary Past turns what is usually seen as a method for investigating the distant past onto the present. In doing so, it reveals fresh ways of looking both at ourselves and modern society as well as the discipline of archaeology.
This volume represents the most recent research in this area and examines a variety of contexts including:
* Art Deco
* miner strikes
* college fraternities
* an abandoned council house.
