About the Author

Lecturer in Heritage Education, Institute of Archaeology, University College London


Comprehensive and good value for money, this volume maps the extent of the relationship between archaeology, heritage, and education; an undertaking that has, to this reviewer's knowledge, never been done before. * HISTORIC ENVIRONMENT *
The strength of Corbishley's book is the detailed use of case studies for each chapter. * AUSTRALIAN ARCHAEOLOGY *
Fascinating and enlivening [...] for its studied and humanistic engagement in how civil society can be furthered and horizons widened through the use of archaeology. [A] gem of a book. * RESCUE NEWS *
Shows how participation in archaeology and heritage can be effectively developed. * CONTEXT *
Stimulates us to compare and contrast, to think critically and explicitly about the various intentions and outcomes of museum or site interpretations, efforts at explaining excavations, or how we deal with hard-to-motivate audiences. There is much to plunder here, and in the sources signposted through the bibliography. * BRITISH ARCHAEOLOGY *
