Description - An Introduction to Museum Archaeology by Swain Hedley

An Introduction to Museum Archaeology provides a comprehensive survey and synthesis of all aspects of current museum practice in relation to the discipline of archaeology. Drawing heavily on examples it deconstructs the different challenges posed by trying to tell archaeological stories in museum buildings, and on related sites. The final section sums up the state of museum archaeology in the early 21st century and discusses the major issues it is currently confronting. There is also a detailed list of every museum and exhibit mentioned in the book, with a Web address and an exhaustive list of references. An Introduction to Museum Archaeology provides an essential text for anyone studying museums, archaeology or cultural heritage and a reference for those working in these fields. It is full of detailed information, and discusses concepts and provides the context for current debates.
