Reviews

From the reviews:

“The focus is archaeological research agendas and the interpretation of archaeological heritage resources in an increasingly globalized economy, workforce, legislative, and political milieu. … Of interest to archaeologists, whether academics, practitioners, or students, much here will also interest others engaged in the multidisciplinary and growing area of heritage studies. … for anyone wanting to understand issues in archaeological heritage today, this is a useful starting point.” (Melanie Hall, Journal of Anthropological Research, Vol. 70, 2014)
