Development is a contested area, but can be summarised as the attempt to bring about good change in society. Archaeology has played only a very limited role within this agenda so far, but has considerable scope to integrate into its practice and structures. This short incisive book focuses on Africa, examining the key issues and threats affecting the archaeological resource, including governance, neglect, conflict, climate change and globalisation. The authors examine the context of archaeology within international development and the remit and work of the key organizations involved, ranging from multi-lateral agencies like the UN and the World Bank to NGOs.
