The Archaeology of the Colonized and Global Archaeological Theory

(p.476) 22 Commentary
Rethinking Colonial Pasts through Archaeology

Chris Gosden

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the archaeology of the colonised within the context of global archaeological theory. It stresses the need to avoid making a dichotomy between the coloniser and colonised, or Incomers and Indigenous. It also considers how colonialism alters people, values, and relations with other people and with things before concluding with a reflection on the gap in the broad general area of materiality and social ontologies.

Keywords:   archaeology, colonised, archaeological theory, coloniser, Incomers, Indigenous, colonialism, materiality, social ontologies
