The Excluded Past examines the uneasy relationship between archaeology and education, arguing that archaeologists have a vital role to play in education alongside other interpreters of the past. Cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary contributors show how the exclusion of aspects of the past tends to impoverish and distort social and educational experience.


`The book explores from an educational angle numerous and often profound aspects of the past in the late twentieth century… A cohesive, landmark book of permanent value yet with enormous potential for influencing the 1990s' - The PPS

`will offer challenging ideas for students and adults who have an interest in how perceptions of the past are shaped in contemporary society' - Teaching History

`No teacher of history should embark upon their programme of work without reference to this book. It demonstrates that there are vast areas of study of the past that are mostly ignored in school history and that this omission is worldwide' - Jean Pilgrim, Remnants

`A rich and valuable book' - Archaeology and Education

`The 25 papers in the volume break new ground in this field' - British Archaeological News
