Forum: Enclosing the archaeological commons?

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

I think I understand Kenneth Aitcheson’s thoughtful article. And I disagree funda-
mentally with most of it. I take this position as an Africanist worried about the
enclosure of our archaeological commons by well-intentioned but excessive and
extractive ethical ‘codes’. I express my unease via the multiple roles of the post-
colonial archaeologist, the notion of ‘common’ standards, and conclude by offering
a reformulation of the archaeologist–client relationship.
