In this era of native title claims in the colonised world archaeology and anthropology need to collaborate more than ever before. The need and reasons for this collaboration were recently discussed by both archaeologists and Indigenous peoples at a recent native title and archaeology workshop (see Smith and Roberts 2001: 72). This book is timely, therefore, as it aims to explore some of the reasons why archaeology and anthropology can usefully collaborate, despite differences in basic data and timescales (p. 205). Gosden, in his exploration of these reasons, endeavors to chart and analyse the changing relationship between the two disciplines. This book is divided into two parts: the first part of the book is devoted to the historical relationship between archaeology, while the second part aims to deconstruct this relationship in the contemporary scene.
