"This collection of essays brings together contributions from both anthropological and classical archaeologists. Essays, drawn from a variety of cultures and time periods, engage a number of common themes, such as issues of authority and identity, and the role memory plays in their creation and transformation. Archaeologies of Memory is an investigation into the central issues in the study of memory and provides an engaging introduction to this controversial subject."--BOOK JACKET." ;
