The main aim of this stimulating book is to demonstrate the inadequacy of a history that is always written by the winners'. Draws on original studies from Africa, North America, Australia and the Pacific in order to make the point. Emphasizes that archaeology has a crucial role to play in promoting a more balanced, eclectic approach to the past.
