This book covers the historical relationship and contemporary interests of archaeology and anthropology, providing a much-needed introduction to the theories and methods of these interrelated subjects. Taking a broad historical approach, Chris Gosden examines the development of the disciplines during the colonial period and shows how the subjects are linked through their interest in kinship, economics and symbolism. The book goes on to discuss what each discipline contributes to debates about gender, material culture and globalism in the post-colonial world. Archaeology and Anthropology offers a unique and necessary survey of how these two fields inform and enrich each other's perspective on the diversity of human culture.
