The Archaeology of Difference
Negotiating Cross-Cultural Engagements in Oceania
Edited by Anne Clarke, Robin Torrence
Published September 28th 2000 by Routledge – 440 pages
Series: One World Archaeology
The Archaeology of Difference presents a new and radically different perspective on the archaeology of cross-cultural contact and engagement. The authors move away from acculturation or domination and resistance and concentrate on interaction and negotiation by using a wide variety of case studies which take a crucially indigenous rather than colonial standpoint.
