Politics of the past: The Representation of the Ancient Empires by
Iran's Modern States' examines the highly problematic politics of
the past surrounding the archaeology of ancient empires in Iran.
Being indigenous, the authors regard the relations between
archaeological remains, (negative) heritage, and modern strategies
of suppression. The chapters provide a detailed analysis of how the
practice of archaeology could be biased and ideologically charged.
Discussing their own personal and professional experiences, the
authors exemplify the real (ethical) dilemmas that archaeologists
confront in the Middle East, calling for reflectivity and awareness
among the archaeologists of the region. The text is accompanied by
visual deconstruction of ancient rock reliefs to indicate the
possibility of alternative histories.
