Ethics in the field of archaeological research, particularly arising in response to the recent trend of contract archaeology, becomes increasingly more complicated as a result of changing human relations surrounding historical evidence. The past is in fact no "dead and buried", and ethical questions about this living record demand an ongoing discussion within the complex social and cultural domains that contend to interpret this record. Authored largely by members of the Society for American Archaeology Ethics Committee, this volume of original articles tackles issues such as the origin of archaeological ethics, responsibilities to the archaeological record (including discussion of documented and undocumented excavation) and responsibilities to diverse publics and between those in the field. This work should fuel a necessary debate among professionals and students of archaeology alike.

This volume is earnestly recommended because it significantly expands and deepens our understanding of archaeological ethics, even as it challenges professionals and students alike to contemplate the conduct and core values of the discipline.--Chip Colwell-Chanthaphonh "Indigenous Nations Studies Journal "
