Natural Disasters and Cultural Change

Series editors’ foreword

One World Archaeology is dedicated to exploring new themes, theories and applications in archaeology from around the world. The series of edited volumes began with contributions that were either part of the inaugural meeting of the World Archaeological Congress in Southampton, UK in 1986 or were commissioned specifically immediately after the meeting - frequently from participants who were inspired to make their own contributions. Since then WAC has held three further major international Congresses in Barquisimeto, Venezuela (1990), New Delhi, India (1994), and Cape Town, South Africa (1999). Other, more specialised, ‘Inter-Congresses’ have focused on Archaeological ethics and the treatment of the dead (Vermillion, USA, 1989), Urban origins in Africa (Mombasa, Kenya, 1993), The destruction and restoration of cultural property (Brač, Croatia, 1998), Theory in Latin American Archaeology (Olavaria, Argentina, 2000), and The African Disaspora (Curacao, Dutch West Indies, 2001). In each case these meetings have attracted a wealth of original and often inspiring work from many countries.

The result has been a set of richly varied volumes that are at the cutting edge of frequently multi-disciplinary new work. The series provides a breadth of perspective that charts the many and varied directions that contemporary archaeology is taking.

As series editors we would like to thank all editors and contributors for their hard work in producing these books. We would also like to express our thanks to Peter Ucko, inspiration behind both the World Archaeological Congress and the One World Archaeology series. Without him none of this would have happened.
