Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Pearson (performance studies, University of Wales) and Shanks (classics and cultural anthropology, Stanford University) synthesize radical elements of archaeological and performance theory to create a methodological framework for the study of landscape and cityscape. The also apply this methodology to the exploration of concepts like physicality, encounter, site, and context. The result is "the joint elaboration of a blurred genre, a mixture of narration and scientific practices, an integrated approach to recording, writing and illustrating the material past"<-->(from the preface).
