This Handbook seeks to reappraise the place of archaeology in the contemporary world by providing a series of articles that critically engage with both old and current debates in the field of public archaeology. Divided into four distinct sections and drawing across disciplines in this dynamic field, it aims to evaluate the range of research strategies and methods used in archaeological heritage and museum studies, identify and contribute to key contemporary debates, critically explore the history of archaeological resource management, and question the fundamental principles and practices through which the archaeological past is understood and used today.

Keywords: public archaeology; archaeological heritage; museum studies; archaeological resource management; archaeological past; research strategies; research methods
