    `A timeless resource of informed discussion' - Antiquity

    `Presents a global perspective on an important issue facing archaeology today...the search for cultural identity in the past. It will be of particular value to archaeologists interested in the growth and migration of cultural groups and the interpretation of material culture as a medium of cultural expression ... this is an excellent collection of papers which is highly recommended.' - American Antiquity
