    The Archaeology and Anthropology of Landscape presents extensively revised versions of twenty eight papers given at the third World Archaeological Congress held in New Delhi in 1994. Contributors from the British Isles, Scandinavia, North and South America, India, Australia and the Pacific demonstrate the value of cross-disciplinary research drawing upon ideas and methods of archaeology, anthropology and geography. Academic and indigenous authors have collaborated to present the values and ideas concerning the landscape from peoples in the Amazon, Siberia, Vanuatu and Australia. Other papers draw upon ethnohistory and archaeology to investigate the durability of non-Western traditions, showing how the meaning of landscapes has either been retained or transformed over time. The Archaeology and Anthropology of Landscape contributes to the development of theory in archaeology and anthropology, provides new and varied case studies of landscape and environment from five continents, and raises important policy issues concerning development and the management of heritage.
