Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory

Conference – Bristol UK – encounters between past and present

CHAT – Contemporary and Historical Archaeology in Theory – great new project starting in a conference that wants archaeologists to think – archaeology merging more with the study of contemporary material culture.

As long as it is realized that materiality only makes sense in terms of what it isn’t supposed to be – immaterial – ie all culture is material.

I talked about how my notion of the archaeology has profound implications for the way we write history.
