  23. 17 and 18.The contemporary relevance of the past III: archaeology, politics and economics-Tim Schadla-Hall 0 items
    The product of archaeology be it objects, sites or publications do not exist in an academic vacuum - outside the rest of life - archaeology has been a handmaiden for nationalism, ethnic conflict and warfare since its appearance. Similarly - and also outside the academy -archaeology has been and still is a trigger for economic activity across the world, often linked to other themes such a nationalism. The aim of this session is to offer a brief overview with selected examples of abuses, mususes and uses of archaeology and at the same time consider the complicated and often tortuous relationships that link these areas both in the past and the present.
