Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
This volume is a highly original compilation of 12 papers that seeks to relate archaeology to the outside world, in an inclusive, rather than exclusive sense. It asks certain questions, for instance: how is archaeology perceived outside of itself as a discipline? How does archaeology mould daily life, for others and ourselves? But perhaps what finally emerges from this collection of papers is the way they address the imagination, especially the poetic imagination. The contributions include part of a new work by major poet, Jon Stallworthy, who explains the background to the poem Skyhorse; Christine Finn writes of Jacquetta Hawkes and her life outside archaeology; Sarah Shaw explores time travel in two stories of reanimation by Mary Shelley.
