Description - The Constructed Past by Philippe Planel
This edited collection presents a group of images of the past, termed in the book construction sites. At these sites, full scale, three-dimensional images for the past have been created for a variety of reasons including archaeological experimentation, tourism and education. The various case studies explore the relationship between the sites' aims and discuss their constant friction. Contributions frankly discuss the problems and mistakes experienced with reconstruction, encourage the need for on-going experimentation and examine the various uses of the sites; political, economical and educational. The book affords a detailed and extensive discussion of such sites and should provide a valuable reference tool for archaeologists and professionals in heritage management.
