Product description

This collection of papers looking at the role of politics and modern western culture in the construction of the Minoan history of the island of Crete is long overdue. Cretan archaeology, like all archaeologies, does not exist in a cultural vacuum, and it is a vital part of all archaeological research to reflexively consider the complex cultural history of the discipline - how the preconceptions of archaeologists over the past century and up to the present have contributed (and continue to contribute) to the kinds of questions we ask about the past and the relative importance we place upon them.
