              Museums, Heritage and Archaeology brings together a wide, but carefully-chosen, selection of literature from around the world that connects museums, heritage and archaeology. Part of the successful Leicester Readers in Museum Studies series, it provides a combination of issue- an...d practice-based perspectives. As such, it a volume not only for students and researchers from a range of disciplines interested in museum, gallery and heritage studies, including public archaeology and cultural resource management (CRM), but also the wide range of professionals and volunteers in the museum and heritage sector who work with archaeological collections. The volume's balance of theory and practice and its thematic and geographical breadth is explored and explained in an extended introduction, on 'Museums, Heritage and Archaeology: Principles, Practice and Debates'. It situates the readings in the context of the extensive literature on public archaeology (archaeological heritage) and museum archaeology, highlighting the many tensions that exist between idealistic 'principles' and real-life 'practice' and the debates that surround these. The extended introduction, section introductions and the seminal pieces chosen by Robin Skeates create a comprehensive and contextualised introduction to the interplay of museums, heritage and archaeology.

              Edited by two pioneers in the field of sensory archaeology, this handbook comprises a key point of reference for the ever-expanding field of sensory archaeology: one that surpasses previous books in this field, both in scope and critical intent. This handbook provides an extensiv...e set of specially-commissioned chapters, each of which summarizes and critically reflects on progress made in this dynamic field during the early years of the twenty-first century. The authors identify and discuss the key current concepts and debates of sensory archaeology, providing overviews and commentaries on its methods and its place in interdisciplinary sensual culture studies. Through a set of thematic studies, they explore diverse sensorial practices, contexts and materials, and offer a selection of archaeological case-studies from different parts of the world. In the light of this, the research methods now being brought into the service of sensory archaeology are re-examined. Of interest to scholars, students and others with an interest in archaeology around the world, this book will be invaluable to archaeologists, and is also of relevance to scholars working in disciplines contributing to sensory studies: aesthetics, anthropology, architecture, art history, communication studies, history (including history of science), geography, literary and cultural studies, material culture studies, museology, philosophy, psychology, and sociology.
