A bold description of archaeology not only in Australia but everywhere indigenous people are fighting for their rights. Controversies over the rights of native peoples to their lands, their material culture, and the remains of their ancestors make headlines worldwide.
Drawing deeply from years of intensive research and teaching, Sarah Colley offers an accessible overview of the practice, politics, and ethics of archaeology today, focusing on Australia to highlight and pose universal questions about the relationship between archaeologists, indigenous people, and the public.
