“Archaeologists are people too”, says Giorgos Chourmouziadis. He speaks of their hopes and their disappointments, their weaknesses and their obsessions, the minor human moments, as well as the major problems of the profession.

  • Product Description

    Archaeological writing is faced with an impasse: it has become repetitive and remote from the reading public. No large-scale excavations are taking place because of the large sums of money required. Archaeological theories are rapidly overturned and archaeological methods are trapped in the technocracy of Archaeometry. The “Excavation Manual” has emerged from a crisis of this kind. Its texts, written in simple, everyday language, attempt to hint at this situation. Sometimes they are merely descriptive and sometimes condemnatory or satirical. Above all, however, they envisage the renewal of archaeology in action.
