UCL has trial access to Contemporary Anthropology: Archaeological Fieldwork and Methods until 28th December 2023.
Contemporary Anthropology: Archaeological Fieldwork and Methods brings together archival and textual material relating to archaeological excavations, methods, and practices from the late 20th century to the present day. It provides insights into the lives, cultures, and societies of ancient and not-so-distant civilizations through the analysis of material remains and artifacts from the past.
The Cusichaca Trust Archive, sourced from the Senate House Library, is featured in this collection. Led by archaeologist Ann Kendall, the Trust did numerous excavations in the South-Central Andes from 1980s-2010s. The archaeology, archaeobotany and ethnohistorical work of the Trust focused on human occupation of the area from the late first millennium BC, through Inca expansion and into the Spanish Colonial period.
