Geoffrey Scarre - Ethics of Archaeology, The. PDF

PDF The question of ethics and their role in archaeology has stimulated one of the discipline's liveliest debates in recent years. In this collection of essays, an international team of archaeologists, anthropologists and philosophers explore the ethical issues archaeology needs to address. Marrying the skills and expertise of practitioners from different disciplines, the collection produces fresh insights into many of the ethical dilemmas facing archaeology today. Topics discussed include relations with indigenous peoples; the professional standards and responsibilities of researchers; the role of ethical codes; the notion of value in archaeology; concepts of stewardship and custodianship; the meaning and moral implications of 'heritage'; the question of who 'owns' the past or the interpretation of it; the trade in antiquities; the repatriation of skeletal material; and treatment of the dead. This important and timely collection is essential reading for all those working in the field of archaeology, be they scholar or practitioner.
