Archaeology and the Media (Hardback)

Not available.


How archaeologists communicate their research and the interpretation of the past is an increasingly important feature of the training of this media-generation of academic and professional archaeologists. With even more importance placed on the public's relationship to its historic places, knowledge, sites and archaeological heritage, it is vital that students are able to question what influence the media, such as popular television programmes like "Time Team", may have on their work, its popular perception or its possible misrepresentation. The main focus of the volume is on television, but readers will find a wider range of issues covered including archaeology in the press, documentary films, photography and digital media.

Tim Clack and Marcus Brittain both teach archaeological theory and philosophy in the Department of Archaeology, University of Manchester. Tim researches into the African Palaeolithic whilst Marcus is a British Neolithic and Bronze Age specialist. They have both worked at the intersection of media and archaeology and are conducting further research projects looking at the relationships between performance, media, public understanding, contemporary society and 'the past'.
