In 2006, Peter Ucko was presented with a festschrift, A Future for Archaeology, edited by Robert Layton, Stephen Shennan and Peter Stone.
In memory of Professor Ucko, Left Coast Press Inc. would like to offer this festschrift to the members of the World Archaeological Congress for a minimal purchase price.
Caryn Berg of Left Coast Press writes:
We would like the members of WAC to have the opportunity to share in Peter Uckoâ€™s vision for a world archaeology.
A Future for Archaeology is devoted to those issues that Peter Ucko brought to the forefront of archaeology worldwide. The essays in this book are concerned with issues such as public archaeology, repatriation, and heritage tourism. They look back at some of the most important events where a role for an archaeology concerned with the past in the present first emerged and look forward to the practical and theoretical issues now central to a socially engaged discipline and shaping its future. And the chapters document Uckoâ€™s central role in these changes.
Available to WAC members for US$10.00 (list price $79.00), UKÂ£5.00 (list price Â£50.00). Price does not include shipping costs
