The Responsibilities of Archaeologists

Archaeology and Ethics

Mark Pluciennik
Lampeter Workshop in Archaeology


The 11 papers in this volume derive from a series of seminars under the aegis of the Lampeter Workshop in Archaeology. The result is an attempt to broaden the debate and discuss the many problems that face archaeologists in the area of ethics today. It also aims to theorize some of the terms that have tended to be taken for granted in previous discussions. Many people engage with ethical issues in their everyday lives, including within their roles as archaeologists, but this thoughtful critical practice perhaps does not always become articulated in published form.
