AbstractThis volume uses professional archaeological codes of ethics to help the reader understand how these codes can be used by practicing archaeologists to solve ethical questions. It discusses issues such as the ownership of the past, relationships between international and national politics, and the connections between the archaeological record and those affected by its study. The volume also looks at the profession of archaeology and discusses issues such as archaeology and reburial, repatriation, and representation.
