This volume explores the ways local communities perceive, experience, and interact with archaeological sites in Greece, as well as with the archaeologists and government officials who construct and study such places. In so doing, it reveals another side to sites that have been revered as both birthplace of Western civilization and basis of the modern Greek nation. The conceptual terrain of those who live near such sites is complex and furrowed with ambivalence, confusion, and resentment. For many local residents, these sites are gated enclaves, unexplained and off limits, except when workers are needed.

Anna Stroulia teaches for the Department of Sociology, Anthropology, and Criminal Justice at the University of Southern Indiana. She is the author of Flexible Stones: Ground Stone Tools from Franchthi Cave. Susan Buck Sutton is associate vice president of international affairs and professor of anthropology at Indiana University. She is editor of Contingent Countryside: Settlement, Economy and Land Use in the Southern Argolid Since 1700.Review:
Archaeology in Situ is a brilliant series of case studies, highly focused and beautifully written. This volume is at the forefront of the most important series of changes in our disciplines for decades, an indispensable tool for the understanding of the shifting relationship between anthropology and archaeology and how we can work together. I recommend it for researchers and students alike―indeed to all those who are interested in archaeology and anthropology in the field, in what really is going on at the trowel's edge. (David Shankland, University of Bristol)
Stroulia and Sutton ask, 'How can we expect local residents to care about sites if they have no stake in them?' Supported by well-documented contributions from some two dozen colleagues, Greek and non-Greek, they propose a thoughtful and innovative scheme for reaching 'some form of collaborative ownership or management, even of official sites' in Greece. The result is an important case study that must be of interest to all archaeologists. Bridging the chasm that exists between archaeological sites and the people who live near them is crucial. How else can we hope to create sustainable heritage management plans but by working to build a bridge between the past and present? (Jack L. Davis, The American School of Classical Studies at Athens)
This 500-page volume, written and edited in accord with high standards, contains 19 chapters written by a group of experienced Greek and US scholars. It provides abundant examples of how the physical evidence provided by archaeological investigations continues to alter perceptions of the Greek past....Summing Up: Recommended. (CHOICE)
