Popular receptions of archaeology

by Susanne Duesterberg | 15 December 2014
Category: General History
Popular archaeology is a heterogeneous phenomenon: By focussing on the German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann, Egyptian mummies and the ruin complex Great Zimbabwe in fictional and factual texts, Susanne Duesterberg analyses the popular reception of archaeology in Victorian and Edwardian Britain. She offers a new interdisciplinary and comparative view on the different archaeologies reflecting contemporary sociocultural concerns. With its focus on popular culture, identity and memory studies, including aspects of gender and postcolonial theory, the book appeals both to a general public and experts from other disciplines.
