Notes

If nothing else, this book proves that the Anglo-American monopoly over archaeological ethics will no longer go unchallenged. This collection of eighteen papers, some of which stem from two seminars held by the Swedish Archaeological Society in 2000, examines the moral and ethical responsibilitis of archaeologists today from a Swedish perspective. Written purely by Swedish arhcaeologists, it covers a range of issues and subjects including archaeology and education, indigeneous people, cultural heritage, looting and museums, treatment of the dead, the academic environment and the public and Swedish archaeologists practising abroad. Different theoretical stances are united here in this analysis of the `moral awakening' of Swedish archaeology and its responsibilities in the modern world. An important book that should be read widely. - via Amazon
