Archaeology and the Media PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Archaeology and the Media free pdf How archaeologists communicate their research and the interpretation of the past is an increasingly important feature of the training of this media-generation of academic and professional archaeologists. With even more importance placed on the public's relationship to its historic places, knowledge, sites and archaeological heritage, it is vital that students are able to question what influence the media, such as popular television programmes like "Time Team", may have on their work, its popular perception or its possible misrepresentation. The main focus of the volume is on television, but readers will find a wider range of issues covered including archaeology in the press, documentary films, photography and digital media.
