“From the archaeology of Lowell, Massachusetts, to the monument commemorating the workers killed at Chicago’s Haymarket Square in the struggle for the eight-hour day . . . to the archaeology and history of the Ludlow massacre in Colorado, Shackel contextualizes archaeology with documents and shows the relevance of these sites for thinking about working class struggles today.”—Journal of Anthropological Research
