Archaeology and Colonialism: Cultural Contact from 5000 BC to the Present
Cambridge University Press, 15. apr. 2004 - 186 sider
Archaeology is the only discipline that allows us to take a long-term view across all forms of colonialism, from the Uruk cities of early Mesopotamia, through the empires of the Romans and the Aztecs, to the colonies of modern European states. In this innovative study, Chris Gosden presents a comparative survey of 7000 years of colonialism. He argues that modern colonialism, giving rise to settler societies, is historically unusual and that colonialism in general represents an important area for the long-term study of power and material culture.
