Reviews


"Joyce takes on archaeology's major themes, writing, and practice in her own engaging text. She has indeed produced a telling story. The book disentangles the enmeshed terrain of representation and narrative, and promises to make a lasting contribution to archaeological theory." Lynn Meskell, Columbia University <!-end->

"This is an engaging and readable study of a profoundly neglected topic in archaeology. The Languages of Archaeology constitutes an open and disarmingly honest investigation of how archaeologists write and indeed construct the past through this process. This is a highly innovative and groundbreaking piece of research, in which the aim of retrieving dialogue from its marginalized position is successfully achieved." Stephanie Moser, University of Southampton
