Archaeologists are becoming increasingly conscious of their ethical responsibilities in the discovery, interpretation and custodianship of the archaeological record. In this important new collection, leading international archaeologists and philosophers come together to discuss the significant ethical issues raised by the contemporary practice of archaeology. Addressing topics such as archaeologists' relations with indigenous peoples, the role of ethical codes, looting and the trade in antiquities, repatriation, and archaeologists' treatment of the dead, this book is an ideal introduction to the ethics of archaeology.
