This book provides an introduction to contemporary debates surrounding the rival claims of the competing interest groups throughout the world that lay claim to the material remains of the past. It deals with defining, owning, protecting, managing, interpreting and experiencing the archaeological heritage. It calls for greater communication and co-operation between archaeologists and other interest groups, and urges archaeologists to increase the involvement of local people in the culturally valuable and vulnerable material remains of the past.
