Sutton, 1997 - 277 pages
This introduction to the structure and context of archaeology in Britain reviews the vital issues facing archaeologists during a period in which the discipline has become increasingly complicated and diverse. The authors offer an analysis of the crucial questions of principle and practice that have arisen. In particular, they examine the implications for the archaeological profession of heritage management and legislation, stricter planning controls, changing land use, and the pressure of public interest and concern.
