Scattered Finds

Between the 1880s and 1980s, British excavations at locations across Egypt resulted in the discovery of hundreds of thousands of ancient objects that were subsequently sent to some 350 institutions worldwide. This book explores the politics, personalities, and social histories that linked fieldwork in Egypt with the varied organizations around the world that received finds.

A Shadow of War

This book presents archaeological research from places of war, violence, protest and oppression of the 20th and the 21st century sites where the material relics give a deep insight to fateful events - a shadow of war.

Relic Hunters

Relic Hunters is a story of the American landscape, and of the role of archaeology in shaping that place. Derived from letters, memoranda, and reports found in more than a dozen archives, this is a unique account of a critical encounter that shaped local and national identity in waysthat are only now being explored.
