Description - Envisioning the Past by Sam Smiles

"Envisioning the Past: Archaeology and the Image" is a groundbreaking collection of original essays that brings together archaeologists, art historians and anthropologists to provide new perspectives on the construction of knowledge concerning the antiquity of man. It covers a wide variety of time periods and topics, from the Renaissance and the 18th century to the engravings, photography, and virtual realities of today. It questions what we can learn from considering the use of images in the past and present that might guide our responsible use of them in the future. Available within the prestigious "New Interventions in Art History" series, published in connection with the Association of Art Historians.
