The Exluded Past is a ground-breaking book that examines the uneasy relationship between archaeology and education. It argues that archaeologists have a vital role to play in education alongside other interpreters of the past. Contributors from different countries and disciplines show how the exclusion of aspects of the past tends to impoverish and distort social and educational experience.
