Rethinking Colonialism

This paper seeks to explore connections and contradictions between certain of the post-colonial archaeologies that have developed in the Old World and the New. It addresses the ways that Post-colonial Roman archaeologies in Britain have been created without the involvement of those from outside the academy. It explores the idea that an ethnographic project along the Frontiers of the Roman Empire might assist archaeologists to broaden out the agenda for Roman studies to enable a more inclusive approach that addresses the living relevance or heritage of the pre-Roman “Celtic” and Roman past to contemporary individuals and communities while also communicating archaeological interests and concerns about the classical past to a broader audience.

Keywords:   Roman, Celtic, Britain, descendant communities, ethnographic project, post-colonial, archaeology, heritage
