Description

Cultural identity is a key area of debate in contemporary Europe. Despite widespread use of the past in the construction of ethnic, national and European identity, theories of cultural identity have been neglected in archaeology. Focusing on the relationships between concepts of cultural identity today and the interpretation of past cultural groups, this text offers archaeological perspectives on the debate surrounding European identities.
