Why does archaeology matter? How does studying prehistory help us understand climate change? How can archaeological discoveries challenge contemporary assumptions about gender? How has archaeology been used and misused to support political and xenophobic agendas - and how can it help build a more diverse and inclusive picture of our world by examining the people left out of written history? The authors address these and other questions, exploring how archaeology's long-term perspective offers unique and surprising views into the most challenging issues facing the world today.
