"Several decades of research into the archaeologyof contact in North America have laid the foundations for the global explo ration of the archaeology of European colonization. It is significant, however, that archaeologists, unlike historians and geographers, have yet to develop a global account of contact and its consequences. This edited work presents case studies from nations developed from British settlement so as toallow historical archaeologists to examine differences and similarities be tween the histories of modern colonial societies world-wide. Written by an international team of experts, the work shows that historical archaeologiescan assume marvellously different and suggestive forms when examined from the periphery. Furthermore, the imperatives of the periphery could result in different perspectives on North American and European archaeological contexts. The work also examines the role of a global vision of the historical archaeology of colonialism in providing a new basis for the evolution of the ‘nation’" - rear cover.. Contents 1.
