Reviews of Archaeology and the Global Economic Crisis

Two recent recent reviews have talked positively about the Archaeology and the Global Economic Crisis, an overview of how the changed economic situation is affecting archaeological practice around the world that was co-edited by Kenneth Aitchison of Landward Research Ltd.

Nathan Schlanger, the other co-editor, has had an excellent summary (together with impressive photograph) published in the ICOMOS Heritage at Risk World Report 2008-2010. Download the article here.

Secondly, Paul Belford of Nexus Heritage has written in The Historic Environment: Policy and Practice that “This book is essential reading for all archaeologists. Its stated aim is not to provide thedefinitive word on archaeology and the global crisis, but to give ‘a sense . . . of the multipleimpacts of the crisis on archaeology’. In this it succeeds admirably”. The full review can be downloaded here.
