About the Book

The Archaeology of Difference presents a new and radically different perspective on the archaeology of cross-cultural contact and engagement. The authors move away from acculturation or domination and resistance and concentrate on interaction and negotiation by using a wide variety of case studies which take a crucially indigenous rather than colonial standpoint.

About the Editors

Robin Torrence and Anne Clarke are respectively Australian Research Council Senior and Postdoctoral Fellows at the Australian Museum and the Australian National University.
