English | 72 Pages | True PDF | 36MB

ARCHAEOLOGY magazine offers compelling narratives about the human past from every corner of the globe. Edited for a general audience, our news, features, and photo essays employ in-depth reporting, cogent analysis, and vivid storytelling to provide an accurate and often surprisingly intimate look at the record of human existence. Our pieces offer insights into the beginnings and ends of cultures, as well as examining the full expression of those cultures. ARCHAEOLOGY’s stories share one distinctive trait—they rest on the close investigation of archaeological evidence—of the things, in short, that we leave behind.
Archaeology Under Fire: Nationalism, Politics and Heritage in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East (repost)

Archaeology Under Fire: Nationalism, Politics and Heritage in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East by Lynn Meskell
Routledge | December 24, 1998 | English | ISBN: 0415196558 | 264 pages | PDF | 4 MB

The Middle East and Eastern Mediterranean are some of the most politically charged regions in which archaeology is implicated. Historically, they played a formative role in the birth of archaeology as a discipline. Archaeology Under Fire addresses archaeology's role in current political issues, including the ethnic cleansing in the Balkans, the division of Cyprus, and the continued destruction of Beirut. The contributors consider the positive role of the past as a means of reconciliation, whether it be in Turkey, Israel, and the Gulf. They advocate a responsible global archaeology, and an awareness of contemporary issues can only enhance this aim.
