Look what just arrived!

In other news, this was on my desk when I came in today!

Ruin Memories: Materialities, Aesthetics and the Archaeology of the Recent Past, edited by Bjørnar Olsen and Þóra Pétursdóttir.

I’ll be reviewing it over the next three months for the Sheffield archaeology journal Assemblage. Having just had a quick look over the contents I’m really, really looking forward to Palliative Curation: art and entropy on Orford Ness by Caitlin De Silvey, and Which ruins do we valorize? a visual calibration curve for the Balkan Past by Douglass Bailey, but I think the whole thing is going to be a very good read.
