Summary
New perspectives in global public archaeology, since it's very beginning, archaeology has in many senses always related to a much wider constitency than just archaeologists. Public archaeology as a feild of research and practice has been developing since the 1970's in english speaking countries, particually in the United States, Britain and Australia and is today beginning to spread to other parts of the world. This volume critically examines the current theories and practices of public archaeology through relevant case studies from different reigons throughout the world. from introduction
