Is there a problem with traditional classical archaeology, and if so, what is it? The effective loss of ‘ownership’, by British classical archaeology, of one of its former components, the archaeology of Roman Britain, gives some food for thought, regardless of any comparison with that of Roman Germany. The unification of Germany set in motion a whole series of schemes, backed by much-increased funding, in which archaeology played a much more central role than would be imaginable in Britain. In Britain, prehistory has for centuries been accepted as the dominant component of archaeology.
